Obama Signs New Executive Order For Sharing Cyberthreat Information

EO comes on the heels of massive breaches at Sony, Anthem.

President Obama today signed a new Executive Order to promote the sharing of cyberthreat information among private sector organizations as well as between the private and public sectors.

This is not Obama's first EO to push cyberthreat intel-sharing: his February 2013 order to buttress the security of the nation's critical infrastructure also called for increased cybersecurity information-sharing, from the federal government to private industry. The new EO includes more details on information-sharing, especially when it comes to private industry's liability and other concerns.

Obama officially announced the EO after his keynote address at the much-anticipated White House Summit On Cybersecurity and Consumer Protection at Stanford University. The EO comes on the heels of the administration's rollout of the new Cyber Threat Intelligence Integration Center, which was announced earlier this week.

"I'm signing a new Executive Order to promote even more information-sharing both within the government sector and between the government and private sectors," Obama said at today's summit. The order calls for a common set of standards and protocols that protect privacy and civil liberties as well, he says.

"So government can share with [private-industry] hubs more easily. It will make it easier for them to get classified cybersecurity threat information they need to protect their companies," the President said.
