Remaining ahead of the shifting threat landscape of today requires a paradigm shift in order to successfully mitigate risks to the Nation’s critical infrastructure. The increasing sophistication of adversarial nation-state actors and the primacy of cross-sector risks have rendered the traditional sector-specific risk-management paradigm obsolete. These new realities demand a less static and more crosscutting approach to critical infrastructure risk management.
In response to these new realities, CISA is working to effect a national paradigm shift in the way that both government and industry view risk. Through cross-sector risk analysis, planning, and strategic interagency and industry partnership efforts, CISA is leading the effort to both defend critical infrastructure and ensure its resilience.
