"It's not going to be very hard to ID them"

After a mob of Trump supporters breached the U.S. Capitol building during a riot last week, the FBI and other law enforcement agencies now face the great challenge of identifying, tracking down and arresting those suspected of participating. But according to a former FBI official, “for most people [that were] there, it is not going to be very hard to ID them,” because of the modern facial recognition technology the bureau has. Others agreed, calling the FBI's facial recognition systems some of the most powerful in the world. More on tech's role hunting down the suspects.

The Department of Defense has the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification, or CMMC, and now the civilian side of government is developing a similar program to secure the tech supply chain from the start in contracts. The so-called Vendor Risk Assessment Program (VRAP) is described briefly in a draft request for proposals for the Polaris Governmentwide Acquisition Contract. It would use both classified and unclassified information to “identify, assess and monitor supply chain risks of critical vendors,” according to the draft. Sara Wilson has more.


More federal victims of SolarWinds hacking likely to come forward

In the continuing saga of SolarWinds hack, a top federal cybersecurity official says to expect more agencies to acknowledge they are victims of the breach. “The number [of federal victims] is likely to grow with further investigation,” Brandon Wales, CISA’s acting director, said in an interview Friday. “That being said, we do believe that the number will remain extremely small because of the highly targeted nature of this campaign. And that is going to be true for both government and private-sector entities compromised.” Sean Lyngaas has more on CyberScoop.
