Tenable on Warning from the Whitehouse on Potential Cyberattacks

“Today’s remarks by President Biden warning of potential cyberattacks from Russia should come as no surprise to anyone. Cybersecurity has and will continue to play a central role in armed conflict. For months, governments around the world have issued stark warnings to batten down the cyber hatches. 


Critical infrastructures, largely operated by the private sector, are a significant target. The world we live in relies on these digital systems — everything from the water we drink to the electricity we use to heat our homes. We cannot afford to leave this infrastructure vulnerable. 


The main takeaway from the president’s statement: organizations need to roll up their sleeves and secure their systems before it’s too late. We have a responsibility and duty of care, especially in turbulent times, to protect ourselves. 

To make these ongoing warnings more actionable, the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency’s (CISA) Shields Up initiative has developed helpful resources that empower organizations to prepare for and defend against cyberattacks.” — Amit Yoran, CEO of Tenable and former founding director of the US-CERT program in the Department of Homeland Security
