Original release date: January 24, 2019 | Last revised: January 25, 2019

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Director Christopher Krebs, has released a blog, titled “Why CISA Issued Our First Emergency Directive,” to explain considerations in issuing Emergency Directive 19-01 on January 22, 2019. The directive requires Federal civilian agencies to take a series of immediate actions in response to a global Domain Name System (DNS) hijacking campaign.

The National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC), part of CISA, recommends Federal agencies review the CISA Blog for more information.
