Regardless of whether it’s a critical infrastructure system or a government network, no entity is invulnerable to cyber-attack in 2022. Thankfully, the looming threat of cyber-attack is getting serious attention from corporate America and from congress. In fact, there is continued interest in cyber-legislation this year with a high likelihood of activity.
Advancing Proactive Cyber-Resilience
The general public is also beginning to understand that the cyber-threat is growing at an exponential rate. While there is no perfect solution to the issue, it’s hard to ignore that more funds are flowing into the cybersecurity field from all sources. Common sense says that investing in cyber protection before something aweful happens will almost always be more cost-effective in the long run. That being said, it is reassuring to know that the recent "Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act" included a prominent state and a local cybersecurity grant program to help keep funds and progress going.
Provisions within the act will promote innovation investments that include savvy cyber operation centers that will serve across state lines. The overall move by congress has the additional effect of promoting a culture of cybersecurity proactivity which benefits all individuals, groups and businesses across the country.
The cybersecurity grant program must also be linked with strong technical assistance and services. Due to this neccesity, the US Senate and House are driven to propel the growth of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency..
The US (and its many corporations) seem to understand that bolting security on top of legacy infrastructure typically results in uninspiring outcomes. With regards to emerging technologies like 5G, developing security directly within the service offering is crucial. Secured-from-the-start design has the propensity to facilitate improved outcomes as well as vendor trust with respect to emerging technologies.
