The US is taking a big step on cybersecurity



Today’s hackers are professionals who have mastered the art of breaching servers and stealing data. Small businesses, multinationals and even governments are investing record amounts on cybersecurity. Yet hackers always seem to always find a way to get the information they are looking for using sophisticated methods.

The European Union acted on this issue with regulation, forcing companies to maintain a high level of protection to avoid big fines if data isn’t secured properly.

Now, the United States followed through with their own piece of legislation which passed both Houses of Congress and is now on the President’s desk awaiting his signature.

The bill will establish the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), a new cybersecurity agency within the Department of Homeland Security, replacing the National Protection and Programs Directorate. Even though its main focus is to protect the .gov domain against cyberattacks, this initiative is a step towards acknowledging the seriousness of new sophisticated data threats.

Tom Kellerman, chief cybersecurity officer at Carbon Black and a member of former president Obama’s Commission on Cyber Security, talked about the positives of CISA in a recent interview:

"The Achilles heel of America is her cybersecurity posture. This new agency represents a cosmic shift in governance toward civilizing American cyberspace."

The US government is taking a step towards protecting its own domains, but unlike the EU legislation, it does not protect personal data held by private corporations.

Because of this, it is up to small businesses and multinationals to take the responsibility into their own hands. For this, companies should turn to Evizone.
