Former U.S. intelligence and military officials urge Washington to address quantum computing threats. A top DOJ official talks about the government's response to a federal courts breach. And the White House promotes IoT labeling. This is CyberScoop for Oct. 20.

The dire need for post-quantum cryptography

At this very moment, adversaries are carrying out “store now, decrypt later,” or SNDL, attacks against the U.S., wherein they are exfiltrating and storing sensitive encrypted data critical to national security, critical infrastructure, corporate enterprises and more. The intention is to steal this sensitive data to decrypt it when quantum computers can decrypt this information. At that time, the public-key encryption algorithms that have protected our stored data, communications, financial transactions, networks, government secrets, intellectual property and other assets for nearly 50 years, will become obsolete.

A 'model' response to federal courts hack

The Department of Justice and Department of Homeland Security’s response to the 2020 breach of the federal courts’ public records management system — thrust into the headlines by the head of the House Judiciary Committee in July — was a “model” of different branches of government working through complex issues in a constructive way, a top DOJ official said Thursday. AJ Vicens reports.

White House rallies support for IoT labels

White House officials convened industry leaders, policy experts and government leaders on Wednesday to discuss plans for security and privacy standards on connected devices. The meeting — billed as a workshop for a nascent White House Internet of Things labeling initiative — focused on the implementation of the program with a focus on issues such as how to ensure labels match international standards, how to design a barcode to ensure consumers can find timely information about a product online and how to raise overall consumer awareness of IoT vulnerabilities. Suzanne Smalley and Tonya Riley cover it.

White House focuses on zero trust implementation

The Office of Management and Budget has moved to an implementation phase for zero trust and is working with agencies to help break out costs associated with the cybersecurity approach in their budgets, according to the federal CISO. Speaking Thursday at CyberTalks, Chris DeRusha said the executive branch agency is focused on introducing measures that will codify long-term cultural change, such as listing costs associated with the cybersecurity approach as a specific budget line item. John Hewitt Jones writes in FedScoop.

Will Biden’s cyberstrategy hold agencies accountable?

The Biden administration’s first national cybersecurity strategy should ensure all federal agencies have the necessary resources for their roles and hold them accountable for their investments, said Google Cloud’s senior director for global risk and compliance. Speaking at CyberTalks presented by Cyberscoop on Thursday, Jeanette Manfra cautioned against trying to do too much with the document. Dave Nyczepir has more at FedScoop.
