Washington (WiredPRNews.com) – A U.S. Congressional watchdog recently outlined in a report the vulnerabilities in the government’s cyber security efforts. As reported by AFP, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) stated on Friday that more clearly defined roles were needed in the area.
The GAO is quoted by AFP as stating in its report, “Federal agencies have overlapping and uncoordinated responsibilities for cybersecurity, and it is unclear where overall responsibility for coordination lies… The federal government does not have a formal strategy for coordinating outreach to international partners for the purposes of standards setting, law enforcement, and information sharing.”
The GAO is further quoted as stating, “Until these challenges are adequately addressed, there is a risk that CNCI will not fully achieve its goal to reduce vulnerabilities, protect against intrusions, and anticipate future threats against federal executive branch information systems.”
