Cybersecurity: Continued Attention is Needed to Protect Federal Information Systems from Evolving Threats: Congressional Testimony (ISBN: 9781437935073)
By Gregory C. Wilshusen
(Paperback, 15 pages, 2010, $15)

Pervasive and sustained cyber attacks continue to pose a potentially devastating threat to the systems and operations of the federal government. Many nation states, terrorist networks, and organized criminal groups have the capability to target elements of the U.S. information infrastructure for intelligence collection, intellectual property theft, or disruption. The dependence of federal agencies on information systems to carry out essential, everyday operations can make them vulnerable to an array of cyber-based risks.

This statement describes: (1) cyber threats to federal information systems and cyber-based critical infrastructures; (2) control deficiencies that make federal systems vulnerable to those threats; and (3) opportunities that exist for improving federal cybersecurity.
