The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has announced the creation of a new cyber-risk management center intended to protect the nation’s banks, energy companies and other industries from potentially crippling cyber-attacks on critical infrastructure, according to agency officials who spoke at the 31 July cybersecurity summit hosted by DHS.
DHS Secretary Kirstjen Neilsen led a panel discussion comprised of Department of Energy Secretary Rick Perry, Cyber Command and National Security Agency leader Gen. Paul Nakasone, FBI director Christopher Wray, Mastercard CEO Ajay Banga, AT&T CEO John Donovan and Southern Company CEO Tom Fanning. Hoping to launch the center in 90 days, the DHS has also established a task force that will focus on threats to the industrial supply chain.
