たった一ヶ月で, 重要なインフラストラクチャは、悪意のある外国の攻撃者によって首尾よく標的にされています. 影響を受けたものの中にはメトロポリタントランスポーテーションオーソリティがありました, which operates the subway and bus systems in New York City.

FoxNewsとの独占インタビューで, Garbarino said that while the MTA hack focused on the information technology systems, cybercriminalscould just as easily disrupt the OT systems of MTA, which could put riders’ physical safety in danger and their personal information at risk.

The potential ramifications are disastrous. Cyberattacks have the potential to have a massive impact on our broader economy, most recently, as was the case with Colonial and JBS, by disrupting critical supply chains,” Garbarino, who is the ranking member of the House Committee on Cybersecurity, Infrastructure Protection, and Innovation, 続く.

Garbarino said that cybercriminals are currently aiming to attack all critical infrastructure sectors, “from the financial services sector to the transportation sector.

The MTA is just one of many recent cyberattacks we’ve seen. The point is that cybercriminals are going after our critical infrastructure and if we don’t work to mitigate cyber threats, it will affect Americans no matter where in the country you live. From increased gas prices to meat shortages, every American is at risk of feeling the effects of recent attacks,” Garbarino explained.

The first-term congressman whose district is serviced by the MTA-operated Long Island Rail Road, said that the Biden administration has more to do when it comes to this threat.

Although I am pleased to see that President Biden has heeded some of our calls to fully leverage the expertise of Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, I think more still can be done over the coming years to empower it with the stature and resources it needs to effectively carry out its mission,” Garbarino said.
