Little is known about Donald Trump’s actual policies regarding cybersecurity except that it is being discussed as a top-level priority in the new administration.
As a candidate, Trump articulated a four-part strategy, however, among security experts it was deemed fairly light-weight in response to the growing threat.
“It sounds like a fairly rational, high-level playbook … but much of this is already being done to a certain extent,” Jared DeMott, chief technology officer at Binary Defense Systems, told CNN Money.
The points in the Trump plan are:
Missing from the proposal are clear rules for companies and governments on when a hack counts as acceptable espionage or an act of aggression — or an act of war.
Perhaps these points will be made stronger during the transition period. Or perhaps after the new administration takes office. Either way, cybersecurity is at least being discussed.
