WASHINGTON—Today, senior Administration officials provided an update on the Administration’s Priorities for Cybersecurity Policy at the Department of Commerce. Yesterday, the President signed an Executive Order (EO) on Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity and a Presidential Policy Directive (PPD) on Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience. These actions will strengthen the security and resilience of critical infrastructure against evolving threats through an updated and overarching national framework that acknowledges the increased role of cybersecurity in securing physical assets.

“DHS actively collaborates with public and private sector partners every day to help prevent and respond to attempted disruptions to the Nation’s critical cyber and communications networks,” said Secretary Napolitano. “These actions taken by the President are a key step towards improved security and resilience as we continue to work with Congress to keep our nation safe and secure for generations to come.”
