FORT MEADE, Md. – The National Security Agency (NSA) and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) are releasing a joint Cybersecurity Advisory (CSA) highlighting the top 10 most common cybersecurity misconfigurations found in large organizations’ networks. The CSA details tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that cyber actors could use to compromise these networks, as well as mitigations to defend against this threat.

The report includes information from NSA and CISA Red and Blue team assessments, as well as activities of NSA and CISA Hunt and Incident Response teams. These teams have assessed the security posture of many networks across the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), Federal Civilian Executive Branch (FCEB), state, local, tribal, and territorial (SLTT) governments, and the private sector.
