The Trump administration recently issued its long-awaited executive order that sets the cybersecurity agenda for the coming years. The challenge now is to translate that executive order, and related cyber policies, into better cybersecurity. In this session, Mr. Kim will discuss an approach based on the concept of operational readiness—focusing cyber efforts on ensuring the integrity of critical missions. Such an approach can help agencies make smarter decisions about where to invest their cyber budget dollars and what kind of tools that they require.
