When President Joe Biden issued his major cybersecurity executive order on May 12, a White House press briefing said the order would invoke:
“the power of federal procurement to say, “If you’re doing business with us, we need you to practice really good — really good cybersecurity. And, most importantly, we really need you to focus on secure software development.”
Over the last six months, Biden’s cybersecurity executive order has set in motion a number of prospective changes for the software community that are important for lawyers to understand and monitor. In light of this, a recent Law 360 article written by Alan Raul and Steve McInerney provides a primer to help lawyers to become better versed in secure software development issues and best practices.
