How To comply
White House Executive Order on Cybersecurity
The Colonial Pipeline
The Colonial Pipeline incident appears to be the straw that broke the camel’s back.
With global cybercrime costs reaching nearly $1 trillion in 2020 according to the Center for Strategic and International Studies, and average ransomware payments now well over $300,000 according to Palo Alto Networks, the threat level both globally and within the United States is clearly increasing.
United States President Joe Biden has issued a new executive order on cybersecurity. The costs of this alarming increase were brought home by the Colonial Pipeline attack in particular, which has led United States President Joe Biden to issue a groundbreaking executive order that lays the foundation for new cybersecurity best practices, increased communication between federal and private sectors, and new standards around cybersecurity incident handling.
