President Biden signs memorandum to bolster cybersecurity of Defense and Intelligence networks

Washington [US]: On Wednesday, United States President Joe Biden signed a memorandum to bolster the cybersecurity of the US Defense and Intelligence communities’ networks.

“This memorandum sets forth requirements for National Security Systems (NSS) that are equivalent to or exceed the cybersecurity requirements for Federal Information Systems,” the memorandum said. “This memorandum establishes and clarifies additional authority and responsibility of the Director of the National Security Agency (NSA) in connection with the National Manager responsibilities for NSS assigned to the Director of the NSA.”
