Restoration Tuesday November 17, 2015

"While the breach at OPM was and continues to be devastating to those federal employees who are affected, we need to remember that cybersecurity is not just an issue at OPM. A recent article in the New York Times quoted the President’s cyber advisor, Michael Daniels, as saying “it’s safe to say that federal agencies are not where we want them to be across the board,” that the bureaucracy needed a “mind-set shift,” that would put cybersecurity at the top of their list of priorities, and that “we clearly need to be moving faster.”"
