U.S. government might make strict changes to cybersecurity guidelines due to frequent cyber attacks
The U.S. government said that it will try hard to bring out the new guidelines to enhance the security of the technology supply chain and it came to the notice that President Joe Biden demanded private sector executives to raise the standards of cybersecurity. Biden in White House is holding meetings with other cabinet members, the finance industry and infrastructure firms have promised of doing much more to evade the increasing cybersecurity threats that are affecting the U.S. economy.
"The federal government can't meet this challenge alone," Biden told the masked executives in the East Room, telling them, "You have the power, the capacity and the responsibility, I believe, to raise the bar on cybersecurity."
Post meeting, The White House announced that the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) would take extra care and associate with other partners and come up with cybersecurity guidelines for a secure future, including open source software.
Google, Microsoft, Travelers, Coalition and others confirmed their participation in the new NIST-led initiative. Right now cybersecurity is above everything in the table to Biden after witnessing high-profile cyber-attacks in SolarWinds Corp, a network management company.
