The CyberWire Launches CISA Cybersecurity Advisory Audio Feed for the Public
Maryland-headquartered cybersecurity news service The CyberWire announced that it has launched a first-of-its-kind public service audio feed for urgent cybersecurity advisories on behalf of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency. Dubbed CISA Cybersecurity Alerts, the audio alerts will be a stand-alone feed that subscribers can find wherever they get their podcasts, The CyberWire said Wednesday.
In a statement, The CyberWire said it is funding CISA Cybersecurity Alerts as a public service, without relying on advertising or corporate sponsorships. The company added that it will also share CISA’s alerts via its flagship CyberWire Daily podcast feed.
CISA Director Jen Easterly said that sharing critical cybersecurity-related information as broadly as possible helps to secure both private and public sector networks and build resilience. She added that CISA will continue to support network defenders by providing resources, tools and timely, actionable alerts and advisories.
Peter Kilpe, The CyberWire’s chief executive officer and executive editor, said CISA’s alerts are all about sharing vital information as quickly and broadly as possible and are “invaluable to the collective cyber defense of the nation.” He added that turning these alerts into an audio resource makes them more accessible to the general public.
Kilpe further said that his company has long relied on CISA for advisories on cybersecurity threats and related matters. He called on other podcasters and companies to share and publish these public service cybersecurity alerts via their own feeds or websites.
