Cybersecurity Executive Order: One Year Later
The Executive Order on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity was groundbreaking. Signed last May, it mandated Zero Trust adoption across the government and recognized the importance of cloud adoption, cyber best practices, software supply chain integrity, and high-quality code.

Following several deadlines to date - in NIST defining critical software, the NTIA outlining minimum SBOM standards and more - agencies continue to move away from outdated security practices and toward new standards to, in turn, reduce vulnerabilities, boost cyber resilience, and create higher quality code.

It’s now one year later. What progress have we made, and what are the biggest opportunities for improvement?

Join ISMG's Tom Field for a moderated discussion with insights from Sean Frazier, Federal CSO at Okta, that will draw from the experience of the attendees, offering insights on EO efforts to meet MFA, encryption and Zero Trust requirements, along with cultural shifts and other best practices.

Discussion topics will include:

  • What are the biggest changes in government and enterprise cybersecurity that you've seen in the year since the cybersecurity executive order was issued?
  • How will the cybersecurity EO continue to influence software supply chain security, and thus, likely ransomware preparedness?
  • What work remains in achieving a new, higher standard of cyber defense?
  • In terms of user education/awareness, what else can be done to drive cybersecurity change across the enterprise, including those with red tape? Was this impacted by Biden's EO?
  • Longer term, do you anticipate similar governmental action here?
