The Government Accountability Office (“GAO”) found cybersecurity risks among the 24 agencies participating in the Office of Management and Budget's Data Center Optimization Initiative ("DCOI").

Despite progress made by the participating agencies, the GAO concluded in a report that the DCOI does not have the appropriate parameters for evaluating the agencies' cybersecurity performance. To remedy this, the GAO outlined recommendations to the DCOI and the 24 participating agencies.
