CISA and NSA Release Joint Guidance on Defending Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) Environments

Today, CISA, together with the National Security Agency (NSA), released a Cybersecurity Information Sheet (CSI) to provide recommendations and best practices for organizations to strengthen the security of their CI/CD pipelines against the threat of malicious cyber actors (MCAs).

Recognizing the various types of security threats that could affect CI/CD operations and taking steps to defend against each one is critical in securing a CI/CD environment. Organizations will find in this guide a list of common risks found in CI/CD pipelines and attack surfaces that could be exploited and threaten network security.     

CISA and NSA encourage all organizations to review this CSI and apply the recommended actions.
