Executive Order on Improving the Nation's Cybersecurity

The Executive Order on Improving the Nation's Cybersecurity was signed by President Biden on May 12, 2021, with the aim of strengthening the United States' cybersecurity defenses against cyber threats.

The order includes a range of actions aimed at:

  • Improving information sharing about cybersecurity threats
  • Modernising federal government cybersecurity practices
  • Establishing baseline cybersecurity requirements for software sold to the government.

Section four of the executive order is particularly significant because it focuses on the role of the federal government in promoting cybersecurity standards in the private sector. It directs the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to develop a set of baseline cybersecurity standards and best practices that software vendors should follow when selling products and services to the federal government.
