Executive Order 14028 | Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity Depends on Data | All Data is Security Data
In recent years, Federal Agencies have been challenged by a growing list of adversaries operating in an increasingly complex cyber threat landscape. At the same time, Agencies have been diligently modernizing their information technology (IT) environments to accommodate evolutionary cloud technology trends and a more mobile and remote workforce. These dynamics have combined to create a complex and seemingly insurmountable challenge in securing and protecting the systems, infrastructure, data, information, and personnel representing our nation’s most critical and sensitive assets.
In the cybersecurity domain, Agencies are facing a myriad of limitations and constraints across both business and technical challenges. Effectively securing mission critical assets is paramount against a landscape of constrained funding, talent shortages, cyber skills gaps, and an overwhelming regulatory and compliance framework. The fast pace of technology evolution and urgent demands for decisive advantage in the cybersecurity domain to combat determined adversaries has resulted in complex operational IT environments with disjointed and siloed security architectures. In many Agencies, security teams are flooded with data, alerts, and indicators without the ability to properly analyze, make sense of, and act upon the insights and information available to them. Un-protected attack surfaces, security blindspots, and exposed vulnerabilities remain throughout the environment and are prime targets for malicious actors. Deployments of common, baseline solutions with manual analysis and process workflows have not proven effective against today’s adversaries.
While the cyber threat landscape continues to outpace defenses, federal IT and OT environments are also going through evolutionary change. Recognizing the performance, innovation, speed, and scale advantages of cloud platforms and solutions, Agencies are actively moving more sensitive and critical applications, data, and information to cloud environments. With a more mobile and remote workforce, Agencies have had to rethink and re-architect their IT capabilities to deliver more distributed capabilities resulting in a broadening of attack surfaces and increase in risks across the IT estate. The architectural changes occurring across the federal IT and OT landscape demand equally evolutionary change to the security and protections deployed to secure our federal assets and information.
The current geopolitical environment, with multiple overseas conflicts that threaten U.S. interests on the world stage, pits the United States against technology advanced nations and demonstrates for the first time in history the importance of cybersecurity and technology capabilities and dominance.
To address these challenges, the President’s Executive Order on Cybersecurity (EO14028) seeks to drive urgent and immediate change throughout federal government to modernize and improve the security posture of the nation’s IT infrastructure, foster robust threat and information sharing, enhance visibility of vulnerabilities and exposures, and improve investigative capabilities to automatically protect, detect, and respond to malicious activities, incidents, and events. To support this order, current OMB Memorandum (M-21-31) directs agencies through a maturity model aimed at not just collecting and storing log data for visibility, but also evolving and applying AI/ML and Behavior Analytic capabilities to enable orchestrated, automated, and comprehensive protective response actions. The Event Logging 3 Tier, at an advanced level, provides for the rapid and effective detection, investigation, and remediation of cyber threats as decisive actions against modern adversary tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs).
At SentinelOne, we are uniquely positioned to help Agencies tackle these problems and combat our most aggressive and malicious adversaries. The SentinelOne Singularity Platform is the only FedRAMP Authorized solution empowering centralized security operations in a world of big-data and decentralized IT. Built for the high performance, high scale demands of our Federal Agencies, our platforms and services offerings are leading the way for Agencies to fully leverage the power of AI/ML, deep analytics, and autonomous enforcement technologies. Combined with an extensive XDR Ecosystem of seamless partner integrations for estate-wide context and enforcement, SentinelOne is a powerful toolset that Agencies are leveraging for real results on the cyber battlefield.
