Cybersecurity is not something that should be handled by Ex. Order, it has always been FTC that has done the research and always helped businesses to be the watchdog for businesses large and small, biggest problem is when businesses seem to think they know better, and not follow things like the Red Flags Regulations that were implemented years ago.
My business was to help those that had businesses set up their systems to avoid Security losses cyber and otherwise, but most businesses thought they knew better.
This Ex. order is just another push for big brother to intrude more into Businesses.
(CNN) — President Barack Obama on Tuesday will sign an executive order outlining standards that companies operating critical infrastructure should follow to protect from cyberattacks, a source informed of the planning told CNN.
The order will also include an information-sharing provision to enable data exchange between the private sector and the government, the source said.
Obama has been considering such an order since last year, after Congress failed to move forward on cybersecurity legislation.
Administration officials have said that the failure to pass legislation has given the executive branch the incentive to fill in the gap with an executive order.
The administration still wants the Department of Homeland Security to regulate critical infrastructure and for Congress to pass legislation, the source said.
