The order also requires federal agencies to produce and share unclassified reports of threats to U.S. companies and directs the National Institute of Standards and Technology to lead the development of a framework of cybersecurity practices to reduce cyber risks to critical infrastructure. It calls for a review of existing cybersecurity regulation and includes private and civil liberties protections, the White House said.
