TYSONS CORNER, VA, Oct. 4, 2021 — Bill O’Neill, vice president of public sector at ThycoticCentrify, has discussed several measures federal agencies should take to ensure that U.S. critical infrastructure is protected against cybersecurity threats as required by a national security memorandum, ExecutiveBiz reported Sept. 22.
“Reported security oversights and vulnerabilities must also be immediately addressed through better interagency information sharing. Back-end IT systems should be updated [in accordance with the guidelines from the National Institute of Standards and Technology] to phase out legacy components and enable regular patching,” O’Neill wrote in a commentary.
He also called for a proactive cyber strategy that is supported by legislation and for further implementation of zero trust approaches.
