A National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) Bulletin issued earlier this month regarding Iran has been extended until March 18, 2020. The bulletin from the Department of Homeland Security notes: “At this time, we have no information indicating a specific, credible threat to the Homeland; however, we remain concerned about Iran’s potential to carry out cyber attacks.”
Recommendations in the bulletin include:
- Report suspicious activity or information about a threat, including online activity, to Fusion Centers and the FBI’s Field Offices - part of the Nationwide Suspicious Activity Reporting Initiative.
- Learn how to recognize signs of pre-operational planning associated with terrorism or other criminal activity.
- Be prepared for a cyber incident with an offline backup, an incident response plan, and know who you are calling for help. For more information visit CISA.gov.
- Connect, Plan, Train, and Report to prepare businesses & employees. Security resources can be accessed through the DHS’s Hometown Security Campaign.
