Cyber Security

Keeping our clients from harm’s way is the overarching mission that drives everything we do. As part of that mission, we’re broadcasting information related to services from the Department of Homeland Security. The DHS offers services that can increase the safety and security for courthouses and municipal infrastructures.

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, (CISA), an agency within the DHS, provides site assessment services via the Protective Security Advisor (PSA) Program. The protective security advisors at CISA provide detailed reports that detail areas of vulnerability and recommendations for potential solutions.

CISA is a valuable resource for providing leading-edge and thought leader solutions. The PSA Program’s primary mission is to proactively engage with federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial government mission partners and members of the private sector stakeholder community to protect critical infrastructure through these five mission areas.

CISA assists with planning, coordinating, and conducting security and resilience surveys and assessments of nationally significant critical infrastructure by offering Assist Visits, Infrastructure Survey Tool, Rapid Survey Tool, and the Regional Resiliency Assessment Program.

CISA’s planning and outreach activities provide access to critical infrastructure security. CISA also provides resilience resources, training, and information for critical infrastructure owners and operators.

CISA can serve as a liaison between federal and local government officials, private sector critical infrastructure owners and operators during and after an incident.

CISA coordinates and supports improvised explosive device awareness and risk mitigation training, and the Cybersecurity Division’s assessments and resources.

What is infrastructure security in cyber security?

Infrastructure security is a set of actions and operations to protect the critical infrastructure from different types of cyberattacks or disasters. It involves securing physical infrastructure, such as fences, security cameras, backup generators, and closed doors, as well as cybersecurity measures like access control, application security, firewalls, virtual private networks (VPN), behavioral analytics, intrusion prevention systems, and wireless security.

How can I implement a robust access control system for my organization’s infrastructure?

First, identify opportunities for integration with your access control solution. Next you want to choose the right access control model. You can choose from various access control models such as Mandatory Access Control (MAC), Role-Based Access Control (RBAC), Discretionary Access Control (DAC), and Rule-Based Access Control (RBAC or RB-RBAC).

In addition, implement a multi-layered access control system and integrate access control with other security systems, and lastly regularly monitor and maintain the access control system to ensure it remains effective and secure.
