Over the weekend, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency added to its list of areas where workers should continue their regular operations amid “stay-at-home” orders under guidance the White House recently issued regarding management of the coronavirus pandemic.
Following CISA’s release of the original list, trade associations for the tech industry urged state and international governments to similarly classify workers for their operations as essential.
“BSA and its members believe that shelter-in-place orders and related policies limiting business operations should include exclusions, consistent with these CISA recommendations, to maintain vital functions performed by Information Technology (IT) and IT infrastructure,” BSA | The Software Alliance, wrote in a letter to US governors.
In a March 26 press release, Aaron Cooper, vice president of global policy for BSA, added: “We urge governments around the world to adopt exceptions, as was done in the guidance from the US Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), in identifying IT and related services as essential during stay-at-home orders.”
