A winning streak of hitting deadlines under President Joe Biden’s ambitious May cybersecurity executive order is widely expected to end Monday, affecting changes that administration officials have touted most: implementing multifactor authentication and encryption at all civilian federal agencies.
“There are just so many that some organizations are going to look and say ‘Okay, we might have 25 information systems that we’re considering this work on,'” said Henry Young, policy director at the Business Software Alliance who formerly worked on cybersecurity and IT issues at the Commerce Department. “We’re going have to prioritize that work, and move, for example, multifactor authentication on our higher value assets sooner, and, and some we’re going to have to move later.”
