ShareThisObama executive order redefines critical infrastructure 14 Feb 2013 President Barack Obama's cybersecurity executive  order, signed on Tuesday, could significantly expand the list of  companies categorized as part of U.S. critical infrastructure sector,  security experts said Wednesday. The  executive order  requires federal agencies and critical infrastructure owners and  operators to work cooperatively to minimize cyber risks and strengthen  resilience to attacks. It also calls for the creation of new consensus  security standards and best practices that critical infrastructure  companies will be urged, but not mandated, to follow.
