New Cybersecurity Executive Order

So by now hopefully most are aware of the recent Executive Order signed by President Trump.  While not numbered, it came out May 11th, which was just before the planned NIST Cybersecurity Framework Workshop.  Full title is "Presidential Executive Order on Strengthening the Cybersecurity of Federal Networks and Critical Infrastructure".

So let's take a look at it.

It has 5 sections.  Sections 4 and 5 we can basically overlook.  Sec4 is definitions, while Sec5 is General Provisions.

Recent events

Am a little behind on posting on some very recent events.

Last week I was at the NIST Cybersecurity Workshop.  Lot of interesting things there.  Further, the prior week Trump signed an Executive Order on Cybersecurity that has an impact on things.

This past weekend I was at the HackMiamiCon5, where I also spoke on cyber resilience.  More on that as well.

Hopefully soon I will be speaking at an upcoming HackMiami meeting on various updates (the NIST CSF Workshop, recent EO, and some other regulations that have come out).

News and upcoming events

One of the news items floating around is the recently signed executive order regarding cybersecurity.  I haven't had a chance to really look over it, but hope to soon and will post my thoughts here.

There are a couple of upcoming events I will be at next week.

First off is the NIST Cybersecurity Framework Workshop at NIST HQ.  I look forward to that.  Should be a great opportunity to gather information, give input, and meet others.  I hope that impact of this new EO will also be covered.

Then next weekend is the HackMiamiCon5 in Miami Beach.  I'll be there, and be speaking on the second day on Cyber Resilience.  Look forward to that.

I will be posting on both events here on the blog, so be sure to check back.
