In February 2013, President Barack Obama issued an executive order (“Order”) outlining steps his administration will take to protect critical US infrastructure from cybersecurity threats.1
The Order is a directive for a collaborative effort between the government and the private sector to reduce and mitigate cyber threats and risks to the nation’s critical infrastructure. It provides for the development of a process to rapidly share unclassified information with specified targets and a voluntary classified information-sharing program for eligible entities.
