US Executive Order on Cyber Security (with industry reactions)
Mike Shultz, CEO of Cybernance, is among those who see a commendable continuity in the Executive Order’s mandates. He approves of President Trump’s requirement that agencies use the NIST Framework the Government developed under President Obama. He also sees commendable change. “This executive order marks a dramatic cultural shift in way the federal government is looking at cyber security. Currently, all federal agencies have their own cybersecurity processes in place to protect their own systems. However, critical information is leaking on a constant basis. Trump’s order mandates that the security of federal agencies has to be controlled on an entire enterprise level—instead of building security protocols for specific systems, all people, processes, and policies within the agency must be analyzed and reported on.” (We note that Cybernance hasn’t wasted much time in offering to help those agencies. It’s announced that the Cybernance Platform is available to support compliance with the Executive Order.)
