Strategy will mirror President Trump's cybersecurity Executive Order.
November 1, 2017
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.
