Akin to the exasperations of the newly minted "homeschool teachers" the pandemic has created, the Biden administration's recent Executive Order on Improving the Nation's Cybersecurity (Order) is a mix of sound logic and utter frustration. The lengthy and sweeping Order is resoundingly one of the most comprehensive national cybersecurity overhauls to date and ushers the Department of Homeland Security's Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) into a forward-leaning position of leadership that has been missing since its inception.

Although some in government insist that "the government is one customer", experienced contractors know that federal business success requires a variety of approaches depending on what you're selling and to whom you are selling it.
