CISA set to open UK-based office to foster global cooperation

The US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has revealed it is set to open an office in the UK to ‘boost international cooperation and collaboration’. 

According to Security Week, the agency’s first Attaché Office will open alter this month in London with the goal of serving as a focal point for international collaboration between CISA, UK government officials and other federal agency officials.

CISA claims the new office will help advance its mission in cybersecurity, emergency communications and critical infrastructure protection. The office will also help to boost operational cooperation, build partner capacity, strengthen collaboration and shape the global policy ecosystem, CISA said.

CISA director Jen Easterly said, “As America’s cyber defence agency, we know that digital threat actors don’t operate neatly within borders. To help build resilience against threats domestically, we must think globally. I’m thrilled for CISA’s first international Attaché Office to open in London—true operational collaboration is a global endeavour.”
