American Technology Council Unveils Plan to Strengthen Government Cybersecurity

Posted September 1, 2017

On Aug. 30, 2017, the White House's American Technology Council published a report proposing a broad, yearlong plan to upgrade the federal government's cyber defense systems by moving digital services to the cloud and establishing a ranking process to prioritize security upgrades for the most critical IT systems.
 
The report, a requirement of President Trump’s cybersecurity executive order, is the first major step in an aggressive IT modernization plan, led by Jared Kushner, Head of the Office of American Innovation, and Chris Liddell, a former Microsoft executive now directing the American Technology Council.
 
The ATC is accepting public comments on the report until Sept. 20, 2017.
