5 urgent cybersecurity actions for executives

From the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency

In today’s highly connected and highly complex technology environment, with dependencies on supply chains
where there is inherently imperfect control, it has become increasingly challenging to completely prevent
incidents that may disrupt business operations. Such an environment necessitates a laser-focus on
resilience, to include dedicated efforts to ensuring preparedness and a rapid, coordinated response to
mitigate the impact of such disruptions to your business or the wider economy.

As the first signs of a major cyber-attack on U.S. infrastructure may be detected by one of your companies,
the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) wants to reemphasize the importance of
continuous collaboration and information sharing in working together to see and understand the threat.

Here are 5 urgent focus areas for every CEO:

At CISA, we lead the national effort to understand, manage, and reduce risk to America’s critical
infrastructure and serve as your close partner, along with the rest of the Federal government, in ensuring the
security and resilience of your operations. Please contact us at with any questions, and
keep your Shields Up!
