Trump Signs Cyber Security Executive Order

Fox News

U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday signed an executive order aimed at strengthening the federal government’s cyber security and protecting the nation’s critical infrastructure from cyber attacks, a senior administration official told reporters on a call.

A copy of the signed order was not immediately available.  

The order is Trump’s first significant action to address what he has called a top priority of his administration.

The long-delayed order comes after Trump nearly signed a cyber security measure just days into his presidency in January before it was pulled back to allow for more input from different federal agencies and consultation with experts.

It follows a presidential campaign dominated by running storylines related to cyber security, including the hacking and subsequent leaking of Democratic emails as part of what U.S. intelligence agencies determined was a wide-ranging operation intended to help Trump win the White House and denigrate his challenger, Democrat Hillary Clinton.

  1. “The order is Trump’s first significant action to address what he has called a top priority of his administration.”

    Since it’s the single mostly likely factor to bring down that treasonous administration, I can see why it would be.
