SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) — President Barack Obama wrapped up his State of the Union speech Tuesday night by announcing that he’d signed an executive order to improve cyber security. Meanwhile, a controversial cybersecurity bill has been reintroduced in the House.
One of the things in that order is that federal agencies would be allowed to notify companies if they detected any kind of cyber intrusion that could harm the operation or the security of company data.
It was largely about cooperation and sharing of information. It also had the National Institute of Standards and Technology create what they called a framework for handling cyber security threats.
