There is a cNet report on the director of the NSA stating
“We do not want to run cybersecurity for the U.S. government”
At least not for all the government agencies, just a select few. With all the latest high profile security breaches on government facilities the brutal honesty of the statement is understood. And it is promising to note some plans are in the works to fix the situation. We have more than enough skilled security experts in this nation, it’s about time we try to tap every resource possible to help strengthen our national cybersecurity posture.
As I suspect we may never really know the full impact some of these security breaches have had.
