DHS, federal agencies urge vigilance from infrastructure operators, facilities

Then last week, the CISA published another Insights bulletin – Enhancing Chemical Security During Heightened Geopolitical Tensions – which “urges facilities with chemicals of interest (COI)…to consider enhanced security measures to decrease the likelihood of a successful attack.” COI is a term used for a list of more than 300 hazardous chemicals that if misused could cause harm to individuals, facilities or society in general, such as if they were stolen and converted into weapons.

Utilities should report any physical security incidents or threats to WaterISAC (analyst@waterisac.org or 866-H2O-ISAC), their local police department, and the FBI (via a local field office). Malicious cyber activity should be reported to WaterISAC as well as to the FBI (via a local field office or cywatch@fbi.gov) and CISA (CISAservicedesk@cisa.dhs.gov).
