The NSA is getting a lot more cybersecurity power



The National Security Agency (NSA) will now have even more power when it comes to protecting the US government’s computer networks following a new memorandum from President Biden.

As reported by The Wall Street Journal, the memorandum mandates that cybersecurity practices and standards like two-factor authentication (2FA) and encryption will be required to protect the country’s national security systems. This means that the Defense Department, intelligence agencies like the FBI and federal contractors will need to upgrade their security if they haven’t done so already.
