CYBERSECURITY
Knowing Risks and
Assessing Resilience for
Organizations
An important step in protecting
yourself is to understand what
risks are present and to assess your
individual resilience to those risks. A
place to start is reviewing the resources
provided by the federal Cybersecurity
and Infrastructure Security Agency
(CISA). Its overarching goal is to
provide resources for organizations
to build their cyber resilience to
combat cybersecurity threats.
CISA has created a cybersecurity
framework (see chart at right) that
provides a guideline for individual
organizations to assess and define
their own cybersecurity needs and
to identify any gaps in their own
systems. Specific sector-based tools
are available to meet specific needs
(tinyurl.com/56pu3vzt).
CISA's cybersecurity framework:
* Identify - Develop the organizational
understanding to manage
cybersecurity risk to systems, assets,
data and capabilities.
* Protect - Develop and impleKEY
ATTRIBUTES
Resources are available to state,
local, tribal and territorial governments
to assist in the recognition of
their cybersecurity risks and to provide
resources to address those risks.
Included are resources to identify
threats, to protect against them, and
to respond to those threats.
One resource CISA provides
the Cyber Resilience Review
is
ment the appropriate safeguards
to ensure delivery of critical infrastructure
services.
* Detect - Develop and implement
the appropriate activities to
identify the occurrence of a cybersecurity
event.
* Respond - Develop and implement
the appropriate activities to
take action regarding a detected
cybersecurity event.
* Recover - Develop and implement
the appropriate activities to
maintain plans for resilience and
to restore any capabilities or services
that were impaired due to a
cybersecurity event.
Two-Factor or
Dual-Factor
Authentication
This authentication method
relies on the user providing
a password as the
initial factor, followed by
a secondary factor, such
as confirming with a code
emailed or texted to you,
or a biometric factor, like
a fingerprint or facial recognition.

This voluntary
assessment can be self-assessed
or facilitated by a Department of
Homeland Security professional.
These assessments review programs
and practices across the organization,
measuring current cyber
strengths and weaknesses. Another
resource CISA provides is the
National Cyber Awareness
System,
which offers up-to-date alerts
and tips to combat emerging cyber
threats (tinyurl.com/2p9a9jp8).
Types of Threats
While there are many types of cybersecurity
threats, ransomware, phishing,
crypto mining malware and
Trojans are the most common. " Ransomware,
now the fastest growing
and one of the most damaging types
of cybercrime, " according to Steve
Morgan, editor-in-chief, Cybercrime
magazine, is one of the top choices
for cybercriminals, with attacks occurring
every few seconds and causing
damage costs in the billions.
Cities like Baltimore and Greenville,
North Carolina, were hit with
the devastating RobbinHood Ransomware.
Though neither paid the
ransom, the overall end cost was
significant. While many entities refuse
to pay the ransom, the threat
still leaves its mark by halting many
services and typically requiring systems
to be rebuilt afterward, which
causes a significant recovery cost.
For Baltimore, recovery costs were
tens of millions, and the attack left
