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's¬†State of the Union address, a¬†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 will¬†enable exchange of data between the private sector and government.¬†The¬†order does not include an enforcement mechanism. The administration¬†still wants DHS to regulate critical infrastructure and Congress to pass¬†more expansive legislation.
