Presidential Executive Order 13800: Perspectives on implementation challenges and leading practices

Aug 23, 2017
From the Government Institute

On May 11, 2017, President Trump signed Executive Order (EO) 13800, Strengthening the Cybersecurity of Federal Networks and Critical Infrastructure. The EO broadly attacks cybersecurity across three interrelated aspects to provide a national approach: (1) federal networks, or how the federal executive branch safeguards its own IT systems; (2) the federal government’s leadership role to identify and support cybersecurity of critical infrastructure at greatest risk across all levels of government and all sectors of business; and (3) national implications of cybersecurity that transcend federal networks and critical infrastructure so the internet remains valuable to future generations.

This KPMG Government Institute white paper offers perspectives on implementing EO 13800. Having worked with governments and business entities around the world, our perspectives are based on well-established leading practices.
