Today, we issued a CISA Insights document titled, "Risk Management for COVID-19" detailing steps to help executives think through physical, supply chain, and cybersecurity issues that may arise as a result of this ongoing public health concern. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), COVID-19 has been detected in locations across the world, including multiple areas throughout the United States. You can read the new CISA Insights at CISA.gov/insights
As the nation's risk advisor, we are sharing this readiness information with our partners to help them plan for potential organizational and workforce impacts from COVID-19, to include: identifying mission essential functions, updating incident response plans, factoring in workforce changes in a distributed environment, and guarding against the possibility of malicious cyber actors taking advantage of public concern by conducting phishing attacks and disinformation campaigns.
We share these insights and hope to hear from our partners on how they make a difference. As always, we value stakeholder feedback and remain open to their recommendations for infrastructure resilience, safety of personnel, and protection of the greater public - collective defense works best when we share what works, communicate, and coordinate.
It's now time to play your part. You all serve an important role for stakeholder engagement by both extending the reach for this product and being an ambassador for comments, feedback, and validation. We will keep you updated as more information becomes available.
