OMB's Memorandum: An Aggressive Timeline for Cybersecurity Compliance

down-arrow

On May 19th, the director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued a memorandum holding Executive Branch department heads accountable for managing cyber risks in their individual agencies. This memorandum enforces the White House Executive Order (EO) issued on May 11th, requiring each agency to adhere to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework. The timeline for compliance is aggressive, requiring agencies to submit their “Framework Implementation Action Plan”” by July 14, 2017. This requirement is followed by a required response to the Office of Management and Budget's risk assessment of each agency by August 9th, 2017. Agencies will be individually held accountable for planning and implementation. The EO requires the OMB to aggregate all information in these reports and present findings to the White House, in order to mitigate known and emerging threats.
