The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) announced the establishment of an international strategy, CISA Global.
The agency’s first international strategy is set up for CISA to work with international partners to assist with the agency’s mission and create unity across mission areas.
“Today’s globally interconnected world presents a wide array of serious risks and threats to critical infrastructure,” Acting CISA Director Brandon Wales said. “There are no borders to the cyber risks we face, and now – more than ever – we must work together.”
The strategy will outline how CISA will utilize its global network to “strengthen partner capacity and build a better, collective practice posture and response to urgent threats that are critical to U.S. national security interests.”
The four main goals for CISA Global, as outlined by the agency, include:
- “Advancing operational cooperation;
- Building partner capacity;
- Strengthening collaboration through stakeholder engagement and outreach; and
- Shaping the global policy ecosystem.”
“CISA Global describes how we will engage with international partners to build CISA’s capacity and strengthen our ability to defend against cyber incidents, enhance the security and resilience of critical infrastructure, identify and address the most significant risks to critical functions, and provide seamless and secure emergency communications,” Wales said.
