After business leaders met t the White House with President Joe Biden today, the White House said Apple will create a program devoted to making security improvements across their technology supply chains, according to CNBC. This will purportedly include working with suppliers to adopt multi-factor authentication and security training.
The business leaders came from sectors ranging from tech companies to insurance firms. CNBC says their commitments range from working toward new industry standards to supplying other businesses with stronger security tools and providing skills training to workers to fill the roughly 500,000 unfilled U.S. cybersecurity jobs. Biden recently signed an executive order requiring U.S. agencies to use two-factor authentication for logins, which can help prevent cyberattacks.
