CISA releases cybersecurity response plans for federal agencies

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency has released new cybersecurity response plans for federal civilian executive branch agencies.

The playbooks standardize the response process and aim to reduce associated risks across the federal government, private and public sectors.

“These playbooks provide FCEB agencies with a standard set of procedures to identify, coordinate, remediate, recover, and track successful mitigations from incidents and vulnerabilities affecting FCEB systems, data, and networks,” CISA said.

The release of the two playbooks was set in motion by President Biden’s Executive Order 14028, “Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity,” signed on May 12th to modernize the cybersecurity defenses of the federal government’s infrastructure against cyberattacks.

While aimed at federal agencies, CISA also encourages public and private sector partners, including critical infrastructure entities and state, local, territorial, and tribal government organizations, to review them to improve their incident and vulnerability response practices.

“The playbooks we are releasing today are intended to improve and standardize the approaches used by federal agencies to identify, remediate, and recover from vulnerabilities and incidents affecting their systems,” said Matt Hartman, Deputy Executive Assistant Director for Cybersecurity.
