Natalie’s Commentary: As soon as the cybersecurity hack of the computer systems linked to the Colonial Pipeline occurred, projected elect Biden signed an executive order for China to continue to start making wind turbines. Peculiar, isn’t it. Planned, most definitely. China has been leading in most cyber security attacks in the United States and little to nothing has been done to hold them accountable and now even less by projected elect Biden in complete support of China’s takeover and destruction of the United States.
The election for 2024 couldn’t come soon enough to try and save this country from communism. Susan Rise has been working on behalf of Joe Biden’s inability to carry out complicated matters having to do with most foreign policy affairs and decisions. But I can tell you with certainty these foreign affairs involve China’s Chinese Communist Party, Russia, Iran, Hamas and Hezbollah. Everybody wants this piece of the pie.
Essentially, the country is President-less and all of the federal agencies especially the CIA, FBI, DOJ, State Department and the DoD are continuing to wreak havoc over the country with only one mission, to make federal government bigger and have more centralized control and power over the states; tyranny.
This country must now depend on its full Republic and the states are reacting to Biden’s bold ignorance where states are suing to prevent Biden and the Democratic destruction. Little by little, one by one Congress may soon add the Republican leadership to disintegrate Nancy Pelosi’s audacious antics going out with the last firecracker in her bag of trickery, schemes, scams, shenanigans, hoaxes, machinations and even admitting she prayed for former President Trump. The woman prides herself in being Catholic. She has done enough damage to this country by taking her order from George Soros and the Obama’s scandalous ways of dysfunctional malice entitlement. ~ Natalie
Biden Signs Cybersecurity Executive Order After Colonial Pipeline Hack
The next Republican President has to make sure he/she shutdown the CIA. Then transfer the power from reginal FBI offices to the FBI headquarters to root out the corruption on the 7th floor and identify those who have lingered on from the beginning of Obama’s Presidency starting in 2009. ~ Natalie
President Joe Biden signed an executive order that he says will improve the nation’s cybersecurity, following a hack of the computer systems linked to the Colonial Pipeline.
Biden’s broad executive order, which the administration has been working on for months, seeks to better equip federal agencies with cybersecurity tools and also encourages improvements in cybersecurity standards across the private sector.
The White House said in a fact sheet that the latest incident with the Colonial Pipeline is “a reminder that federal action alone is not enough” and that the private sector, which makes its own decisions regarding cybersecurity investments, owns and operates much of the United States’ critical infrastructure.
“We encourage private sector companies to follow the Federal government’s lead and take ambitious measures to augment and align cybersecurity investments with the goal of minimizing future incidents,” the White House said, while noting other past incidents such as with SolarWinds and Microsoft Exchange.
The 5,500-mile pipeline network carries gasoline and diesel from refineries in Texas and supplies about 45 percent of the fuel on the U.S. East Coast.
Atlanta-based Colonial restarted operations Wednesday afternoon after having temporarily shut down on May 7 following a ransomware attack by hackers who disabled some internal computer systems and demanded a ransom to release them.
The hackers didn’t take control of the pipeline operations but Colonial shut the pipeline down to contain the damage. The FBI on May 10 confirmed that the DarkSide cybercriminal ring was behind the attack. The shutdown triggered fuel shortages and increased gasoline prices across multiple U.S. states.
Biden’s cybersecurity order requires that software companies contracted by the government meet certain cybersecurity standards. They will also have to report about any of their their own security breaches, and the order will remove any contractual barriers to doing so.
The order will create a test program where a particular software will be labeled with an “energy star” system so that the government and the public “can quickly determine whether software was developed securely.” The effort seeks to “use the purchasing power of the Federal Government to drive the market to build security into all software from the ground up.”
The order will also require a “zero-trust” approach to securing cloud services used by federal agencies, in part by mandating multifactor authentication and encryption within a specific time period to access such services.
Other initiatives in the order includes creating standard protocols for federal departments and agencies to respond to potential future cyber incidents. The “standardized playbook” will also serve as a guide for the private sector, the White House said.
The order also creates a “Cybersecurity Safety Review Board” that will be co-chaired by government and private sector heads to convene after significant cyber incidents to analyze and make recommendations going forward. The new board is modeled after the National Transportation Safety Board, which attends to airplane crashes and other incidents.
Under the new order, a government-wide endpoint detection and response system—a cyber technology that continually monitors and responds to address cyber threats—will be enabled on federal networks. The Biden administration will also create requirements for federal departments and agencies for logging events and retaining other relevant data within an agency’s systems and networks.
