The White House issued an Executive Order on improving the Nation's Cybersecurity on May 12, 2021. The Executive Order gives agencies 180 days to "adopt multi-factor authentication and encryption for data at rest and in transit". Thales TCT, a U.S. based provider of government high-assurance data security solutions, offers multi-factor authentication, data at rest encryption, and data in transit encryption solutions that address the requirements outlined in the Executive Order.

Part 1 of this video series based on a recent Thales TCT webinar discusses the U.S. Federal cybersecurity landscape and provides a primer on the EO.
