Blockchain workers a 'critical service' in U.S. COVID-19 response
In a memorandum issued by The Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, blockchain managers are among those identified as essential critical infrastructure workers during the COVID-19 response.
  • PUBLIC SAFETY, FIRST RESPONDERS
  • FOOD AND AGRICULTURE
  • ENERGY
  • WATER AND WASTEWATER
  • TRANSPORTATION AND LOGISTICS
  • PUBLIC WORKS
  • COMMUNICATIONS AND INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY
  • OTHER COMMUNITY-BASED GOVERNMENT OPERATIONS AND ESSENTIAL FUNCTIONS
  • CRITICAL MANUFACTURING
  • HAZARDOUS MATERIALS
  • FINANCIAL SERVICES
  • CHEMICAL
  • DEFENSE INDUSTRIAL BASE

CISA says it will continually solicit and accept feedback on the list (both sectors/sub sectors and identified essential workers) and will evolve the list in response to stakeholder feedback. The agency says it will also use its various stakeholder engagement mechanisms to work with partners on how they are using this list and share those lessons learned and best practices broadly.
