Upcoming US national strategy to call for more regulations

The Biden administration is reportedly pushing for a US national cybersecurity strategy that calls for more cybersecurity regulations, including in relation to the US critical infrastructure. The strategy, expected to be signed in the coming weeks, would require that regulations are developed by consulting industry actors as a means to ensure that the rules advance security without being unworkable or unduly burdensome. As Mark Montgomery, a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies argues, ‘the strategy reflects the hard lessons we’ve learned from SolarWinds to Colonial Pipeline — that our supply chain and our critical infrastructures are under duress,’ and the key part will be translating all of this into action.
