Officials Pleased to See Cybersecurity Progress
After the federal government’s efforts on computer security received a “D” in a recent Congressional report card, top OMB officials and security experts said they were pleased to see at least some progress from the grade given the previous three years – an “F.” The report cards are released as part of a collaborative effort between OMB, Congress, and federal agencies to improve cybersecurity in the federal government.
Said Karen Evans, the Office of Management and Budget's administrator for e-government and information technology: "We would like to see higher grades, but it does show a momentum moving forward. It does show the [inspectors general] have recognition that the agencies that have put a lot of effort in are moving forward… Any movement forward is a good thing."
