Davis Gives Government a C-minus on Information Security Efforts
From the press release: "Rep. Tom Davis (R-Va.), ranking member of the House Government Oversight and Reform Committee, gave the federal government an overall grade of C-minus when it comes to safekeeping information on government computer systems."
"The Department of Justice and the Department of Housing and Urban Development showed the most improvement from 2005 to 2006. Justice jumped from a D to an A-minus, and HUD climbed from D-plus to A-plus. HUD had, for the first time, developed a full inventory of its information security apparatus, a major plus in the grading. It also showed improvement in virtually all categories. NASA, which fell from B-minus to D-minus, and the Department of Education, which fell from C-minus to F, showed the biggest declines."
