It looks like the Department of Homeland Security is under fire for their general lack of ability, infighting and lack of progress in securing the federal government. A recent report from a task force responsible for reviewing the DHS gives them a failing grade and says they need to lose their authority over cybersecurity.
As much as I wish I could say this surprised me, I haven’t heard or read even a single article in the few years that would contest these findings. In fact, almost every article I’ve read supports the idea of finding a new way of promoting cybersecurity at the Federal level. And I can honestly say that I don’t blame the folks at DHS, since they were handed a nearly impossible job with little or no authority to actually effect change.
