'President' Donald Trump is expected to sign an executive order addressing cybersecurity today, Reuters reports in an item that cites "two sources familiar with the situation.” The EO is expected to be Trump's first action to address what he called a top priority of his administration during the Presidential campaign.
“The order is expected to commission several different reviews of the government's offensive and defensive cyber capabilities,” Reuters says, citing those sources and a third who was “briefed on a draft of the order that circulated last week.”

The order is expected to also initiate a audit of several federal agencies' cyber capabilities, seek input on how to improve protections for critical infrastructure, and review government efforts to attract and train a technically sophisticated workforce, according to two of the sources briefed on the draft, which was first published by the Washington Post.
The draft order would also seek ways to give the private sector incentives to adopt strong security measures.
Lo, how the mighty have fallen.
“No Collusion No Obstruction.” Got it.
