Trump Signs Executive Order On National Cybersecurity
President Trump Thursday signed an executive order that aims to improve the federal government's cybersecurity practices and reduce its susceptibility to hackers. Specifically, the order directs federal officials to perform a full review of the country's digital security vulnerabilities. "The executive branch has for too long accepted antiquated and difficult–to-defend IT," the executive order reads in part. The order had gone through a number of revisions in recent months but appears to differ little from the prior two administrations in terms of cybersecurity policy.
