The Federal Communications Commission encourages communications companies to review the Joint Cybersecurity Advisory Understanding and Mitigating Russian State-Sponsored Cyber Threats to U.S. Critical Infrastructure, authored by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and National Security Agency (NSA). The Commission urges all communications companies to take the recommended actions to protect their networks from cyber threats, to detect and notify CISA of cyber threats impacting communications services and infrastructure, and to share threat information with CISA and other industry stakeholders, as appropriate. 

For more information about the Joint Cybersecurity Advisory, please contact CISA Central via email at central@cisa.dhs.gov. Companies may report cyber incidents to CISA via https://www.cisa.gov/uscert/report or to the FBI via a local FBI field office via phone at (855) 292-3937, or via email at CyWatch@fbi.gov.
