CISA catalogs known cybersecurity vulnerabilities

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) published a catalog of “known exploited vulnerabilities,” under a directive that requires federal civilian agencies to identify and remediate these vulnerabilities on their information systems.

More than 18,000 new cybersecurity vulnerabilities potentially impacting both federal agencies and private companies were discovered just last year, according to CISA, which classified over 10,000 of those as “critical” or “high severity” vulnerabilities. The agency encouraged those within the critical infrastructure – including food and agriculture – to use the catalog even though it is only required for federal agencies.

“Building collective resilience requires action across all stakeholders,” CISA noted.
