President Barack Obama will sign an executive order on Tuesday outlining standards that companies operating critical infrastructure should follow to protect from cyberattacks, a source informed of the planning told CNN.
The president is expected to discuss the order during tonight'sÂ State of the Union address, aÂ source informed on the planning tells CNN.
Obama will release the order in detail on Wednesday, the source said.
The order will have an information sharing provision that willÂ enable exchange of data between the private sector and government.Â TheÂ order does not include an enforcement mechanism. The administrationÂ still wants DHS to regulate critical infrastructure and Congress to passÂ more expansive legislation.
