Jeh Johnson, Thomas Donohue Urge Businesses to Use DHS & Chamber of Commerce Cybersecurity Resources

cybersecurityJeh Johnson, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, and U.S. Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Thomas Donohue have called on businesses to use information and resources from DHS and the Chamber to support cyber, economic and national security programs.

Johnson and Donohue wrote in a joint guest post published Thursday on The Hill that the Chamber and DHS work together to promote safe cybersecurity practices among businesses from all sectors across the U.S.

They said businesses should adopt principles outlined in the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Cybersecurity Framework and participate in DHS’s information sharing efforts such as the Automated Indicator Sharing program.

Business leaders should also regard cybersecurity as a valuable investment and add cybersecurity into risk management plans while employees should take responsibility for online actions and safety, Johnson and Donohue added.

Johnson and Donohue also urged Congress to take further measures to help DHS address growing cyber threats as well as potential large-scale, physical consequences of cyberattacks.
