The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) released the annual report mandated by the Federal Information Security Modernization Act (FISMA) of 2014, on March 18, 2016. The report, which evaluates Federal agencies’ information security policies and practices, indicates that during 2015 there were 77,000 cyber incidents aimed at the government, including network breaches or data infiltration – a 10% increase from 2014. The report also notes that most federal agencies lack information security, and that while several initiatives to address the personnel challenge exist, “implementation and awareness of these programs is inconsistent.”
