Theresa Grafenstine, vice chair of ISACA’s board and inspector general of the House of Representatives, has outlined five cybersecurity issues that she believes the 45th U.S. president should prioritize within the first 100 days of the new administration.
Grafenstine wrote in an opinion piece published in the Hill that the incoming president must work with Congress to support the cybersecurity coordination of regulatory and enforcement agencies at the local, state and federal levels, ISACA said Monday.
She said the country’s next leader should work to thwart nation-state cyber attacks amid a lack of defined international norms to govern cyber warfare, according to the nonprofit professional association.
Grafenstine also urged the 45th president to support the creation of an educational structure that will foster cybersecurity skills; discuss cybersecurity issues in all meetings of global leaders; and build on government IT modernization efforts.
ISACA is a global association of 140,000 information technology and security professionals in 180 countries and offers standards, networking, credentialing and career development services.
