Cybersecurity experts are growing concerned that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) hasn’t indicated which critical cybersecurity capabilities the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has ceased during the on-going partial government shutdown. “With each passing day, the impact on our nation’s security grows,” said former DHS cyber chief Suzanne Spaulding. “Meanwhile, our adversaries are not missing a beat and the daily attacks on our system continue.” The House Committee on Homeland Security said yesterday that “we can’t afford to have our cyber efforts put on hold.” In accordance with DHS and the Office of Management and Budget Guidance, baseline operations continue to support national security.
