The US government is not good at security according to the US government

Cybersecurity might be a big talking point in politics today, but you wouldn’t be able to tell if you watch the practices of the US government itself.

The President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) released a report on the state of the nation’s cybersecurity today. The report’s first finding: the US government is terrible at cybersecurity.

“The Federal Government rarely follows accepted best practices,” the report stated. In order to ensure that the country as a whole is more secure against cyber attack, the council advised, the government “needs to lead by example and accelerate its efforts to make routine cyber attacks more difficult by implementing best practices for its own systems.”
