Biden Administration’s New Announcement - Shifting Liability for Software Products to Vendors
The National Cybersecurity Strategy will have a major impact on businesses. Organizations will be required to meet minimum security requirements and adhere to secure principles to protect their data and systems from malicious threats. Vendors must now be responsible for the security of their technologies, and organizations handling individual data must pay closer attention to how they protect that data.
OMB 22-18 Now Mandates Zero-Trust and Continuous Monitoring
Federal Mandate OMB 22-18 requires all government agencies to request self-attestations about the security posture of the software they consume. These self-attestation forms should be provided by the agency, but it’s time for those software organizations selling to the government to start preparing their internal teams to respond to these requests.
CISA Launches New Pilot Program for Ransomware Protection
CISA announced a Ransomware Vulnerability Warning Pilot (RVWP) program to identify vulnerabilities in critical infrastructure systems that ransomware groups exploit. This initiative aims for timely risk reduction by alerting infrastructure owners and operators about vulnerabilities in their systems.
The pilot program requires CISA to develop regulations for covered entities to report cyber incidents and ransomware payments. With ransomware posing a significant threat to national security and public safety, the RVWP aims to provide actionable information to reduce damaging ransomware incidents.
Health and Human Services Transitions to NIST Cybersecurity Framework
The Department of Health and Human Services now adopts and aligns with the NIST Cybersecurity Framework. This transition will require all government agencies and vendors to adhere to the minimum requirements of NIST for all their Cybersecurity requirements
The Cybersecurity Framework Implementation Guide provides specific steps that health care organizations must take immediately to manage cyber risks to their information technology systems and reduce the number of cyber incidents affecting the sector. The plan will make sure that health organizations can better protect their patients, intellectual property, and research.
