Trump Administration to Craft New Cybersecurity Plan

Strategy will mirror President Trump's cybersecurity Executive Order.

White House Homeland Security Adviser Tom Bossert said today that the Trump administration will establish a new cybersecurity strategy that draws from the president's Executive Order signed in May.

"As soon as we're prepared to put forward a strategy that will be beneficial to the government and the nation, we'll do so," Bossert said, according to a DefenseOne report.

Bossert said the strategy will encompass the themes of the EO, including beefing up security in federal agency networks and critical infrastructure, and adoption of security best practices. 

The EO specifically called for the adoption of the National Institute of Standards and Technology's cybersecurity risk framework of best security practices.

Plans are ok but bot the total solution
Having a plan is fine and dandy, but unless you fund it, add resources and provide enforcement and corrective actions then the plan is just a piece of paper. Politicians are good at writing plans and bills, but doing it right and making ti work are not their strong suit. And that goes for both sides of the aistle.
