Constant Vigilance Demanded – Cyber “Not Just Another Risk”

The Biden Executive Order was a catalyst for action, with tight delivery times for action, including promotion of SBOM and Zero Trust. The cyber-physical nexus and expanding threat surface mean it’s not easy to maintain vigilance, but recognizing that is the first step explains Nitin Natarajan, Deputy Director, CISA. “How are we making sure that the CEOS and the board understand the risks that they are accepting within the organization (because) If we identify it and not mitigate it, we’ve accepted it,” says Natarajan. EO – “The thing that really surprised me was the aggressive way in which the entire federal government was getting behind these requirements and deliverables, to move quickly. We actually had our first deliverables in just weeks – a very challenging timeframe.”
