CIS, CISA to Block Malicious Websites for State, Local Gov

September 4, 2020


With election season right around the corner and reports of ransomware incidents on the rise, several security organizations have come together in an effort to prevent the cyberattacks against state and local government by zeroing in on domain security.

Federally funded cybersecurity nonprofit the Center for Internet Security (CIS) — which has provided state-of-the-art cybersecurity policy and organizational benchmarks since the 1990s — has teamed up with the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) to pilot a Malicious Domain Blocking and Reporting Service (MDBR).
