The President’s Executive Order (EO) on “Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity (14028)” issued on May 12, 2021, outlines several cybersecurity measures and requirements intended to harden our nation’s digital infrastructure against increasingly frequent and sophisticated cyberattack. The EO charges multiple agencies with enhancing cybersecurity through a variety of initiatives related to the security and integrity of the software supply chain.
Issued on July 28, 2021, National Security Memorandum (NSM) designed to help strengthen the security of critical infrastructure by setting baseline performance goals for critical infrastructure owners and operators. The NSM also establishes the President's Industrial Control System Cybersecurity (ICS) Initiative, a voluntary, collaborative effort between the critical infrastructure community and the federal government launched in mid-April to facilitate the deployment of technology providing threat visibility, indicators, detections, and warnings.
Brian Scott, Director for Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity, National Security Council will highlight the mission and focus of the EO and NSM under the Biden Administration.
