The NSA demonstrates during Cybersecurity Awareness Month that it knows something about the power of memes. The White House convenes an international summit on the global ransomware scourge. And CISA's critical infrastructure performance goals have operational security experts talking. This is CyberScoop for Oct. 31.

Spy agency embraces meme culture

If you didn’t know any better, you might think a teenage hacker commandeered Rob Joyce’s Twitter account. The cybersecurity director of the National Security Agency has posted one meme after another nearly daily over the month of October (yes, it’s for Cybersecurity Awareness Month). And he’s been hitting all the internet’s favorites: a cackling Leonardo DiCaprio, Elmo with mushroom cloud and celebrating squirrel, to name a few. Despite the spy agency’s staid reputation and typically reserved approach to media, Joyce is succeeding at using humor to bring more attention to the NSA, and its mission, if the number of likes and shares are any indication. Suzanne Smalley has the story.

White House summit tackles ransomware problem

The White House is convening a ransomware summit on Monday to increase global and private sector cooperation to confront a problem that continues to bedevil law enforcement agencies around the world. The two-day International Counter Ransomware Summit includes leaders from 36 countries and the European Union who will discuss how to bolster resilience against ransomware attacks and thwart the cybercriminals behind them. “This is really a global problem,” a senior Biden administration official said ahead of the conference in Washington. “We’re seeing the pace and the sophistication of the ransomware attacks increase faster than our resilience and disruption efforts.” Tonya Riley reports.

Experts on critical infrastructure security goals

Washington policymakers have lamented for years that the mostly private critical infrastructure sectors need to do more to protect vital services from hackers, but whether newly issued guidance lives up to initial praise and finds widespread adoption is another question. The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency released long-awaited cross-sector cybersecurity performance goals on Thursday for critical infrastructure to provide owners and operators a quick-start guide on baseline priorities. Christian Vasquez covers it.
