On May 12, 2021, President Biden signed an Executive Order to improve the nation’s cybersecurity and protect federal government networks. In the order it stated “Recent cybersecurity incidents such as SolarWinds, Microsoft Exchange, and the Colonial Pipeline incident are a sobering reminder that U.S. public and private sector entities increasingly face sophisticated malicious cyber activity from both nation-state actors and cyber criminals. These incidents share commonalities, including insufficient cybersecurity defenses that leave public and private sector entities more vulnerable to incidents.” Two key areas of focus from the Executive Order mandate Federal agencies to implement multi-factor authentication and encryption for data at rest and in motion. This session will provide the specifics on this mandate and how Thales can help you achieve this required security posture.
