White House Business Press Release - Vital Integrators

On Monday, March 21st, the White House released a statement to business owners everywhere about how to secure their information on cyber platforms. With the current war happening between Russia and the Ukraine, the possibility of a cyber attack against America is on the rise.

Here are the steps that the White House is urging companies to execute with the utmost urgency:

  • Mandate the use of multi-factor authentication on your system to make it harder for attackers to get into your system;
  • Deploy modern security tools on your computers and devices to continuously look for and mitigate threats;
  • Check with your cybersecurity professionals to make sure that your systems are patched and protected against all known vulnerabilities, and change passwords across your networks so that previously stolen credentials are useless to malicious actors;
  • Back up your data and ensure you have offline backups beyond the reach of malicious actors;
  • Run exercises and drill your emergency plans so that you are prepared to respond quickly to minimize the impact of any attack;
  • Encrypt your data so it cannot be used if it is stolen;
  • Educate your employees to common tactics that attackers will use over email or through websites, and encourage them to report if their computers or phones have shown unusual behavior, such as unusual crashes or operating very slowly; and
  • Engage proactively with your local FBI field office or CISA Regional Office to establish relationship in advance of any cyber incidents. Please encourage your IT and Security leadership to visit the websites of CISA and the FBI where they will find technical information and other useful resources.
