Federal agencies have 60 days to identify all critical software at their offices. The new White House memo says agencies must implement security measures within the next year.

  • Tony Scott, former federal chief information officer, now chief executive officer of The TonyScott Group, said the biggest challenge for agencies to carry out the order within 60 days will be cross-communication between silos.
  • Scott said the goal is to respond to rising ransomware attacks by taking inventory of software to understand vulnerabilities and necessary patches or updates.
  • Agencies farther along with modernization will find implementation relatively easy, but those starting from scratch will find it more difficult and might need additional resources, said Scott.
