Cybersecurity Update

With the uncertainty in the world because of the conflict involving Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, we want to remind you to take steps to protect municipal assets from a cyber-attack. Once malware is deployed, it has the potential to infect systems across the globe. Further, U.S. infrastructure may be directly attacked in retaliation for sanctions or other steps taken by the U.S. government.
  
 We encourage you to review the following:

  • The Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) offers resources, FAQ’s, no-cost services, and guidance on how to avoid a cyber-attack on their websites and recently issued the “Russian State-Sponsored Cyber Actors Gain Network Access by Exploiting Multifactor Authentication Protocols and ‘PrintNightmare’ Vulnerability”.
  • The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in the U.S. Department of Commerce has a cybersecurity framework.
  • The New Jersey MEL has cyber risk control resources/bulletins and video

In addition, please monitor the New Jersey Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Cell Alerts & Advisories for new risks, intrusions, and available solutions.

 We encourage you to review this information with your municipal administrator and IT Director.
