The past year has led many people and organizations to depend more on technology, completely changing the way they operate. With the increased dependency of technology, it should come as no surprise that the number of breaches and security risks have increased as well.
In fact, cyber security attacks have risen by 35% during COVID, and have exposed significant supply chain vulnerabilities in some of the largest government entities today. As a result, the Biden administration signed a new executive order defining cyber security requirements government entities must meet, directed by organizational needs.
Some of the requirements include:
- Broadening security implications
- Increasing software transparency
- Adopting threat modeling and control validation
- Working directly with suppliers to map out secure software frameworks and tools
