About this talk

The new Executive Order moves quickly to address greater transparency and information sharing of cyber-attacks and breaches – what does this mean to you? We will take a look at the forthcoming (draft of published) Executive Order on Cybersecurity from the White House. Spurred by the Solar Winds cyberattack, the Administration determined the need to improve the speed and efficiency of for incident investigation and responses and improving the security of software services. The EO proposes rapid and significant policy changes that will have broad implications for both public and private sectors. Highlights of the order include: • Significant increases in authority and resources for the government to run/coordinate/standardize the security of civilian federal networks (e.g., incident response playbooks, endpoint detection and response, logging event data). • Mandatory incident reporting to the federal government for every software and SaaS provider. • Removal of Federal and Defense contractual barriers which prevent sharing of data related to event prevention, detection and response • New requirements for software suppliers to attest to the security of their software development lifecycle. • A swift increase in the pace of federal government agencies to transition to the cloud and adopt a zero-trust model. Speakers: Lisa O'Connor, Managing Director, Global Cybersecurity Research and Development, Accenture Kelly Bissell, Sr. Managing Director, Accenture Security Ann Johnson, CVP Security, Compliance and Identity, Microsoft Dr. Sezaneh Seymour, Senior Advisor to the Deputy Assistant to the President and Deputy National Security Advisor for Cyber and Emerging Technology on the National Security Council
