TRUMP SIGNS CYBER SECURITY EXECUTIVE ORDER

Washington – U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday signed an executive order to bolster government’s cyber security and protecting the nation’s critical infrastructure from cyber attacks, the White House said.

The order seeks to improve the network security of U.S. government agencies, from which hackers have pilfered millions of personal records and other forms of sensitive data in recent years.

It also aims to better protect critical infrastructure, such as the energy grid and financial sector, from sophisticated attacks that officials have long warned could pose a national security threat or cripple parts of the economy.

The order additionally lays out goals to develop a more cogent cyber deterrence strategy, in part by forging strong cooperation with U.S. allies in cyberspace. (QNA)
