For the last six months, our very own State of New Jersey has been cultivating its own state of the art Cybersecurity resource, The New Jersey Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Cell. I’m glad to report that in such a short time, the site has become one of the most valuable resources out there.
I urge you to visit the site on a regular basis. It is a wonderful one-stop-shop for timely public alerts, tips and just plain great information about every kind of threat and what you can do about it.
Check out the latest post on Ransomware here:
There are up to date podcasts, presentations and great easy to understand, educational articles on Mobile Malware, Botnets, Exploit Kits, Point of Sale Malware, Ransomware and Trojans.
You can report incidents and data-breaches right from the site and appropriate action will be taken. Here’s some detailed info from the site, please check it out, bookmark it and if qualified, you can sign up and become a member to receive additional types of information:
The New Jersey Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Cell (NJCCIC) is the State’s one-stop shop for cybersecurity information sharing, threat analysis, and incident reporting. Located at the Regional Operations Intelligence Center (ROIC), the NJCCIC brings together analysts and engineers to promote statewide awareness of local cyber threats and widespread adoption of best practices.
Cybersecurity is a collective responsibility and New Jersey’s digital density demands close and constant collaboration across sectors and industries. The goal is to promote shared and real-time awareness of cyber threat for New Jersey’s citizens, local governments, businesses, and critical infrastructure owners and operators. The NJCCIC bridges the information divide between local, state, federal, public, and private sector institutions to reduce New Jersey’s cyber risk and respond to emergent incidents.
CYBER THREAT ANALYSIS
The NJCCIC fuses technical and non-technical sources to analyze New Jersey’s local cyber threat landscape and reduce the State’s virtual vulnerabilities. In addition to cyber tips, alerts, and mitigation techniques, the NJCCIC produces sector-specific threat assessments. Our analysis correlates both historical and current data and reflects our collaborative relationship with local, state, federal, and industry partners.
We encourage our members and all New Jersey citizens and businesses to voluntarily report cyber incidents to the NJCCIC’s Cyber Liaison Officers. Doing so will aid incident response and help us get ahead of the attacker’s next move.
