Agencies Issue “Shields Up” Advisory to DIB Companies

Tuesday, February 15, 2022 8:25 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The rising geopolitical tensions in Eastern Europe have prompted the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Cyber and Infrastructure Security Agency to issue a “shields up” advisory (www.cisa.gov/shields-up). The defense industrial base is one of 16 official U.S. critical infrastructure sectors. Via a Defense Department communication received this morning, we encourage you to do three things.

  1. Heed the advisory.
  2. Report Cyber Incidents. DFARS 252.204-7012 stipulates a contractor’s requirement to rapidly report cyber incidents impacting Covered Defense Information (CDI) and/or the ability to perform operationally critical support within 72 hours of discovery to https://dibnet.dod.mil. For questions or more information, contact DCISE (DC3.DCISE@us.af.mil or call the 24/7 Hotline at 1-877-838-2174).
  3. Get Assistance and Partner. These three organizations can assist you.
    • DoD Cyber Crime Center’s (DC3) DoD- Defense Industrial Base Collaboration Information Sharing Environment (DCISE) – www.dc3.milDC3.DCISE@us.af.mil; 24/7 Hotline – 1-877-838-2174
    • National Security Agency’s Cybersecurity Collaboration Center (CCC) – https://www.nsa.gov/About/Cybersecurity-Collaboration-Center
    • National Defense Information Sharing and Analysis Center (ND-ISAC) – ND-ISAC is the official ISAC for the DIB Critical Infrastructure Sector recognized by DoD and DHS. The ND-ISAC is a private sector self-organized and self-governing entity; it is a trusted partner providing exceptional technical solutions and support to its members. Please email Info@NDISAC.org to contact the team or see ND-ISAC’s public-facing website at www.ndisac.org.
