According to the Office of Management and Budget’s annual cybersecurity report card, federal agencies are still vulnerable to common cyberattacks, FCW reported.
This isn’t to say agencies aren’t trying; though agencies reported around 77,000 cybersecurity incidents between fiscal 2014 and fiscal 2015, they also worked through the 30-day cybersecurity sprint and the Cybersecurity Strategy and Implementation Plan.
However, while these initiatives were a step in the right direction, they also revealed further weaknesses, FCW said. OMB emphasized CyberStat meeting with agencies and other work to help quell cybersecurity incidents.
