This guide was created by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) to provide state, local, tribal, and territorial (SLTT) emergency managers with foundational knowledge of cyber incidents to increase cyber preparedness efforts in their jurisdictions. Planning Considerations for Cyber Incidents: Guidance for Emergency Managers provides recommendations on how to plan for and respond to cyber incidents.
Key aspects of cyber incident preparedness included in the document are:
§ Understanding the types of cyber incidents likely to occur.
§ Engaging service owners and operators.
§ Identifying cyber dependent critical services and related dependencies.
§ Prioritizing and planning for service and system disruptions.
§ Identifying roles and responsibilities.
§ Providing integrated communication and public messaging; and
§ Developing a cyber incident response plan.
During November, CISA will support several 60-minute FEMA-led webinar sessions that will provide an overview of the final guide and supporting materials.See Original Post
