Executive order could institute controversial cybersecurity measures

The draft order is said to still be undergoing revisions, but likely will involve the institution of a voluntary program for private companies operating critical infrastructure to cooperate with government-instituted standards and best practices, The Hillreported. The program would be led by the Homeland Security Department and include the Commerce and Defense departments, as well as others still being determined. While DHS would manage the program, the National Institute of Standards and Technology would work with industry in crafting the framework.
