The administration has created a tall order in defining security requirements for federal agencies and their software providers. And until those details are fleshed out, it's hard to say if the executive order will move the industry in the right direction and make things safer for everyone.
“I would say industry likes clarity … but industry also likes quality so if what comes out of it is overly broad and creates more signal than noise there's a little tension there,” says Henry Young, policy director at BSA | The Software Alliance. "What we want is focused but also clear rather than very broad.”
