Trump signs an executive order on electronic security

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came after Trump almost signed a similar order on electronic security days after taking office in January but was withdrawn to allow more input from various federal agencies and consult with experts.
