Lee also released this statement on broader DHS efforts: “The Department of Homeland Security continues to coordinate national efforts to strengthen the security and resilience of critical infrastructure, working with our federal and industry partners across the country to raise awareness about evolving threats and promote measures to reduce risks to systems we all rely on. As the U.S. Government’s 24/7 hub for cybersecurity information sharing, incident response, and coordination, the Department’s National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center – or “NCCIC” – is critical in our efforts to ensure our nation’s cybersecurity. The Industrial Control Systems Cyber Emergency Response Team (ICS-CERT) responds to cyber incidents, vulnerabilities and threats that can impact industrial control systems which operate critical infrastructure across the United States.”
