Cyber-Security in 120 Secs Drafting a Cyber Security Executive Order.png

This week Trump announced his concern with cybersecurity by drafting an executive order to moderate infrastructures;  ransomware took down 123 of D.C's police cameras just before Trump's inauguration; and an update of the Lincolnshire Hospital investigation on ransomware. 

 

 Cyber Security Executive Order

 

Why is this signficant?

  • "The draft reveals the White House will be calling for swift review of “national security systems” and critical infrastructure within 60 days of the time the executive order is signed. Within 100 days, the president says he will ask for an assessment based on current threats and vulnerabilities and will call for recommendations on how to incentivize the private sector to adopt effective cyber security measures."

2. Ransomware took Washington D.C.’s closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras offline just eight days prior to Trump’s inauguration.

Why is this signficant?

  • 8 years of evidence, due to a ransomware attack, it is looking to be less of random ransomware and more of “Targeted Ransomware”.
