Former Vice-Chair for the DHS SLTTGCC commentary: one year anniversary of Colonial Pipeline attack

Mike Hamilton, former vice chair for the DHS' State, Local, Tribal, and Territorial Government Coordinating Council, and currently CISO of the firm Critical Insight, comments on the first anniversary of the Colonial pipeline attack:

“The TSA, which is the sector-specific agency for the transportation sector, is now firmly engaged in communicating cybersecurity requirements to pipeline operators. Late to the game, but still progress. We also now understand the importance of pipeline security, despite not having picked that up when Russia disabled a pipeline that carries energy to the country of Georgia some years ago.

“We’ve also seen that we can expect surgical attacks against certain sectors that appear to be ransomware, but have an outsized impact on the American economy and social fabric. This has created more of an incentive for DHS/CISA to share information outwardly WITH the private sector, rather than expecting all information to be shared FROM the private sector. This is having a positive impact.”
