DHS’s Cybersecurity Infrastructure and Security Administration (CISA) issued an advisory to State, local, tribal and territorial governments regarding the designation of critical infrastructure during COVID-19. The advisory is available here: https://www.cisa.gov/identifying-critical-infrastructure-during-covid-19. CISA is sharing for broadest possibility distribution.
CISA Director Krebs noted that this advisory is not meant to be an exhaustive list and will be informed by sector coordinating councils and the evolving conditions. The key will be how this gets acted on and how this shapes decision making. CISA is seeking feedback on this guidance, which IWLA will provide.
The food sector description includes: “Employees and firms supporting food, feed, and beverage distribution, including warehouse workers, vendor- managed inventory controllers and blockchain managers.”
Please let me know immediately of any problems you are encountering and whether state and local officials are following the DHS advisory.
Also, today IWLA and the Global Cold Chain Alliance sent the attached letter to every Governor.
