Federal Agencies Publish Joint Advisory For Energy Sector
The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), Department of Energy (DOE), National Security Agency (NSA), and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) released a joint Cybersecurity Advisory to warn that certain advanced persistent threat (APT) actors have exhibited the capability to gain full system access to multiple industrial control system (ICS)/supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) devices.
DOE, CISA, NSA, and the FBI urge critical infrastructure organizations, especially Energy Sector organizations, to review the advisory for specific products affected, implement the detection and mitigation recommendations to detect potential malicious APT activity, and harden their ICS/SCADA devices.
In addition to reviewing this joint advisory, CISA encourages critical infrastructure executives and senior leaders to review their “Shields Up” webpage.
Also, organizations should share information about incidents and unusual activity with CISA’s 24/7 Operations Center at firstname.lastname@example.org or (888) 282-0870.
