SAN FRANCISCO — Just a few weeks after President Obama issued an executive order aimed at protecting the country’s critical infrastructure against cyberattacks, White House officials came to a major cybersecurity conference to lobby for industry support on the new order.
Throughout the weeklong RSA cybersecurity conference, top administration officials stressed that the successful execution of the executive order hinges on private-sector collaboration with the federal government.
“We’re in this together, both government and industry. We need your help,” Andy Ozment, a senior director of cybersecurity at the White House, said during a Thursday panel.
White House Cybersecurity Coordinator Michael Daniel, who participated in two widely attended panels during the conference, also sought to drive home that same message about the president’s cyber order to the industry representatives in the crowd.
