White House Council to Release Recommendations on Improving Critical Infrastructure’s Cyber-Infrastructure Resiliency

A report by a White House council laid down ways to ensure a resilient cyber-physical critical infrastructure.

On Thursday, the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology approved recommendations that will enhance cyber-physical critical infrastructure’s resiliency. Among the recommendations made are creating a clear definition of minimum operating capabilities and delivery objectives, and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency and the National Security Agency spearheading the creation of a knowledge base and tools. The working group also suggested identifying the “whats and whys” of the national critical functions list. 

The report will be released in mid-February on the PCAST website, CyberScoop reported.

Phil Venables, chief information security officer at Google Cloud, said that with the critical infrastructure sector having more cyber infrastructure, a breakdown or cyberattack can have a significant impact on its operations.

To address the threats faced by the critical infrastructure sector, Bill Rowan, vice president of public sector at Splunk, recommended next-generation observability strategies and tools to help in the decision-making process aimed at incident prevention.
