Due to increasing geopolitical tensions, the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) Cyber and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has issued a 'Shields Up' advisory (www.cisa.gov/shields-up). The Defense Industrial Base is one of 16 official United States critical infrastructure sectors. Like the other critical infrastructure sectors leaders, we're reaching out to 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.
