White House cyber security orders could be imminent

The White House could be on the verge of announcing its much-anticipated executive order on cyber security measures on Feb. 13.

An email notice from the Department of Homeland Security on Feb. 12 said a number of White House, DHS, Department of Defense and Commerce Department leaders would officially appear at an “Administration Event To Highlight Priorities for Cybersecurity Policy” on Feb. 13 in Washington, DC, at the U.S. Commerce Department building.

The White House has been rumored to have been preparing a set of executive orders that would implement some broad national cyber security measures ever since last fall, when Congress failed to approve comprehensive legislation that would protect the U.S. and its infrastructure from electronic assault.

The president is set to give his state of the union address the evening of Feb. 13 only hours after the event at the Commerce Department.

Slated to appear at the Commerce Department event are:

  • Rebecca Blank, Deputy Secretary, U.S. Department of Commerce Michael Daniel, special assistant to the President and White House Cybersecurity coordinator
  • Gen. Keith Alexander, Commander, U.S. Cyber Command, director, National Security Agency/chief
  • Central Security Service, Jane Holl Lute, deputy secretary, U.S. Department of Homeland Security
  • James Cole, deputy attorney general, U.S. Department of Justice
  • Dr. Patrick Gallagher, under secretary of Commerce for Standards and Technology and Director of the National Institute of Standards and Technology, U.S. Department of Commerce
