On February 12, 2013, the White House Office of the Press Secretary released an Executive Order issued by President Barak Obama labeled “Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity”.  Soon after, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) developed a program based on the President’s Executive Order for financial institutions to use as a guide.  Below you will find links to the Executive Order and the NIST’s Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity.
