Executive Order on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity

President Biden’s May 12, 2021 Executive Order (EO) has accelerated and highlighted the crucial need to improve U.S. cybersecurity. The EO is inclusive of both guidelines and timelines that agencies must meet to keep pace with the evolving threat landscape.

A Privileged Access Management (PAM) strategy is a critical component in a modern cybersecurity environment. As a result, the Executive Order mandates several requirements that only a robust PAM solution like BeyondTrust can satisfy.
