On Friday, the White House has launched the "30-day Cybersecurity Sprint," a program designed to improve cybersecurity protocols across all government agencies, according to a report from The Washington Times.

The new program is being driven by the recent cyberattacks on the federal government. The program urges all government agencies to take a number of steps over the next month to improve security and lessen the chances for hacker success.

Steps in the program, according to the report, include:

•    Fix any vulnerabilities
•    Improve policies and practices for all users who can access sensitive information
•    Put in place multi-factor authentication procedures
•    Implement the Department of Homeland Security's electronic indicators, which bring attention to any malicious cyberattacks
