Biden Signs Memo to Boost National CybersecurityDavid Chung
President Biden has signed a National Security Memorandum requiring national security systems to implement network cybersecurity measures that are as good as those required of federal civilian networks.
The new memo, signed Wednesday, specifies how the provisions of EO 14028 apply to national security systems. The National Security Memorandum establishes timelines and guidance for how cybersecurity requirements, including multi-factor authentication, encryption, cloud technologies and endpoint detection services, will be implemented.
In a statement released Wednesday, the White House said: “Modernizing our cybersecurity defenses and protecting all federal networks is a priority for the Biden Administration, and this National Security Memorandum raises the bar for the cybersecurity of our most sensitive systems.”
