“Most likely what will happen is we will find what we already know which is that these industries are all incredibly cyber vulnerable,” said Kathryn Waldron, a cybersecurity expert at the R Street Institute. “They’re all incredibly attractive targets for malicious actors and that probably their cybersecurity is not as good as they think.”

The White House will discover fundamental problems with the public and private sector’s ability to assess their cybersecurity postures as well as a worsening workforce gap, according to analysts, former government officials and industry representatives.

“We don’t really have a lot of great metrics or systems of measurement for cybersecurity and so I think actually determining whether or not an industry has a good cybersecurity posture in general is not something that we’re really able to do well as a country both from a government standpoint but also maybe from an industry standpoint,” Waldron continued.
