ABA Applauds White House Executive Order on Cybersecurity

By Rob Nichols, president and CEO

​     “The executive order issued today will enhance the security of government systems and help protect our critical financial infrastructure -- and ultimately bank customers -- through enhanced information sharing and greater cross-industry collaboration.”
 
     “The financial services industry is committed to help protect our country’s critical sectors and economic security. America’s banks will continue to work closely with the White House, Congress and others to establish clear lines of public-private communication, while avoiding inconsistent or duplicative regulation that might undermine our efforts to protect banks and the customers they serve.”
