GAO report questions DHS cybersecurity efforts
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has failed to fulfill the cybersecurity responsibilities it has been assigned since its creation in January 2003, according to a government report released Thursday.
DHS has not created national cyber vulnerability assessments or government and industry recovery plans for cyber attacks, according to the report, issued by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO). The agency has "not fully addressed any" of its 13 key cybersecurity areas, the GAO report said.
