The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) partnered with the National Security Agency (NSA) to jointly issue a guidance document on the protection of critical infrastructure and control systems associated with operational technology.

The joint advisory includes information on observed tactics and techniques employed by cyber actors and potential impacts on operational technology systems, CISA, part of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), said Thursday.

“Operational technology assets are pervasive and underpin many essential national security functions, as well as the Defense Industrial Base,” said Anne Neuberger, director of NSA's Cybersecurity Directorate and 2020 Wash100 Award recipient. 

The government released the advisory to help operational technology users evaluate their cybersecurity against threats.

“We encourage all stakeholders to apply our joint recommendations with DHS CISA," Neuberger added.
