Homeland Security Scores an F for Internal Security AGAIN

Use Netsparker


Well I would have thought these guys should have had a little better security..

The Department of Homeland Security received an F (Failing) grade in cybersecurity from the House Government Reform Committee for the third year in a row. The Committee will likely give the Fed a D+ overall for its cybersecurity efforts. The grades will be unveiled today during a Committee oversight hearing, “Is the Government Ready for a Digital Pearl Harbor?” The grades are based on how well the comply with standards defined by the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA)

Homeland Scores an F

Better hope the cyber warfare cells from ‘enemy countries’ don’t notice this eh?
