OMB: cybersecurity first

Friday, 6 February 2004, 8:14 AM EST

With a push for agencies to secure existing systems before investing more dollars, the administration has outlined the information technology money available for security for 18 agencies.

Money that agencies planned to spend on development, modernization and enhancement should first go to IT security, Office of Management and Budget officials said today.

"Look at your IT portfolio. Look at your IT programs," said OMB Administrator for E-Government and IT Karen Evans. "How are you managing your department? What are your priorities? The priority of this administration is cyber security.... Don't lay money on top of what you already have. Secure what you have, and if you do it efficiently, you have money to spend in other areas."
