The EpochTimes on a recent report of the Government Accountability Office:
It found 41,776 cybersecurity incidents in 2010, up from just 5,503 in 2006. The GAO also analyzed the security practices of two dozen federal agencies, and gave recommendations on improving federal cybersecurity in line with the Federal Information Security Management Act of 2002. It noted, however, these implementations were not yet in place.
“An underlying reason for these weaknesses is that agencies have not fully implemented their information security programs,” states the report. “As a result, they have limited assurance that controls are in place and operating as intended to protect their information resources, thereby leaving them vulnerable to attack or compromise.”
