Christopher Krebs Director CISA

The Department of Homeland (DHS) Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has launched a strategy to help safeguard industrial control systems from cyber threats, CyberScoop reported Tuesday

“We’re going to ask more of the ICS community, but we’re also going to deliver more to you,” Christopher Krebs, director of CISA and a 2020 Wash100 Award winner, said Tuesday at a virtual meeting of the ICS Joint Working Group. 

The strategy seeks to promote the use of data analytics and technology platforms and advance training to help protect operators of transportation, energy and other critical infrastructure from foreign threat actors. 

“We’re going to develop deep data capabilities to analyze and deliver information the community can use to disrupt the ICS kill chain,” Krebs said.
