Executive Order on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity from Joseph Biden on 2021-05-12

Context

  • Issued days after the Colonial Pipeline carrying 45% of the East Coast's fuel was shut down after a ransomware attack compromised their computer systems which threatened the security of the pipeline.

Problem

"The United States faces persistent and increasingly sophisticated malicious cyber campaigns that threaten the public sector, the private sector, and ultimately the American people’s security and privacy.."

  • The US has been treating cybersecurity as an offensive weapon and not addressing defence of the country, only of the military assets.
