Biden Sets Cyber Standards for Critical Infrastructure
The President Biden issued a National Security Memorandum on Improving Cybersecurity for Critical Infrastructure Control Systems, with the goal of safeguarding the country’s critical infrastructure.
One of the items listed in the memorandum includes the “Industrial Control Systems Cybersecurity Initiative, a voluntary, collaborative effort between the Federal Government and the critical infrastructure community to significantly improve the cybersecurity of these critical systems.”
"The order was mostly filled with voluntary measures for companies to meet a series of online security standards, like encrypting data and requiring two-factor authentication for all users on a system, to stymie hackers who possess stolen passwords", as The New York Times reported in an article.
