TIP-32: Have a Backup Plan

Since your information could be lost or compromised (due to an equipment malfunction, an error, or an attack), make regular backups of your information so that you still have clean, complete copies. Backups also help you identify what has been changed or lost. If your computer has been infected, it is important to remove the infection before resuming your work. Keep in mind that if you did not realize that your computer was infected; your backups may also be compromised... continued.

DHS Revs Up Its Part Of The Cyber Executive Order

The Homeland Security Department will take the first step to move from theory to practice under President Barack Obama's cyber executive order.

DHS' National Protections and Programs directorate in two weeks will launch a voluntary program for companies to improve the security of their computers and networks.

"We will be launching what we call the voluntary program on Feb. 14, enabling companies of all sizes to follow some basic cybersecurity policies and due care that have been designed through the framework by the best scientists in the private sector and the government that we have. [We are] looking at how we can incentivize companies, again of all sizes, to be more secure, to enable big companies to share their best practices, to drive markets for small to medium to enable economies of scale for companies that are smaller and may not be able to afford to now have very good cybersecurity, [and] to have a cybersecurity policy," said Phyllis Schneck, the deputy undersecretary for cybersecurity at NPPD, in an exclusive interview with Federal News Radio. "When I say to adopt the framework, that's to voluntarily either improve your cybersecurity posture, follow some of the recommendations, engage in our website portal, even if it's just to look at a critical infrastructure resilience review. [There is] no need to report to us, but we want companies of all sizes, the federal government and state and local to be more secure, and we are committed to doing everything we can do get that framework adopted. And that means helping companies not only adopt policy, but drive markets to make good technology."

DHS will release the new voluntary program shortly after the National Institute of Standards and Technology releases version 1 of the critical infrastructure cybersecurity framework, which is due by Feb. 13.

President Barack Obama issued an executive order in February 2013 detailing steps the government and industry would take together to improve cybersecurity in both sectors.

The General Services Administration and the Defense Department delivered on another Executive Order requirement last week with the release of six recommendations for improving how agencies integrate cybersecurity into federal procurement actions.
