President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Thursday aimed at strengthening the federal government’s electronic security and protecting the country’s vital infrastructure from cyber attacks, a senior administration official said.

A copy of the signed order, Trump’s first major action to address what he calls a top priority for his administration, has yet to be seen.

The long-delayed executive came after Trump almost signed a similar order on electronic security days after taking office in January but was withdrawn to allow more input from various federal agencies and consult with experts.
