Trump had been expected to sign the order in the Oval Office on Tuesday afternoon. It’s unclear what’s behind the delay.
A White House official said Tuesday the order would charge the head of the Office of Management and Budget with assessing the security risk to computer networks across the executive branch of government.
The official said the order also directs agency heads to develop plans to modernize information technology infrastructure.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity because details of the executive order hadn’t been publicly released.
