Tech Sector Likes Cyber Order’s Enterprise-Wide View, Cloud Push
Tech-sector reaction to the White House’s sweeping cybersecurity executive order issued May 12 came in largely positive today, with security technology makers particularly applauding the urgency of the administration’s plans, the enterprise-wide view that the order takes for improving security, and its actions to hasten the movement of Federal agencies to cloud services.

Information sharing is prominently called out and the administration plans actions to remove roadblocks currently in place stopping companies and agencies from sharing threat information with each other. That’s good.” He added, “incentives will also be needed since the mandated information sharing initiatives are limited to contracted companies doing business with the Federal government or federally regulated organizations.”
