OMB To Reduce The Number Of Internet Connections For Government Agencies
The Office of Management and Budget wants to reduce the number of Internet connections across government to 50 by June.
Under a new Trusted Internet Connections initiative, which OMB will kick off with a governmentwide meeting Nov. 30, agencies will have to develop a plan of action and milestones by Jan. 8 on how they will reduce the number of Internet connections.
The initiative also will require agencies to use the Homeland Security Departmentís U.S. Computer Emergency Response Team Einstein program to improve their response capabilities. The White House requested an additional $115 million Nov. 6 to expand the Einstein program under the DHS fiscal 2007 appropriations bill.
