Gov’t Cybersecurity Receives "D" in Report
A new report ordered by OMB – and released to the public by the House Government Reform subcommittee on technology, information policy, intergovernmental relations and the census – indicates the government’s efforts relating to computer security have a way to go. The same report of government agencies one year ago gave the federal government’s cybersecurity an "F"; this year’s grade is a "D".
"The OMB instructed the agencies to submit reports summarizing the results of IT security reviews of systems and programs; agency progress on correcting identified weaknesses; and the results of IG independent evaluations."
"The Federal Government should be the standard bearer when it comes to information security. Unfortunately, today's report card indicates anything but that..." said [Adam] Putnam (R-Fl)"
