Federal Cyber Security Outlook for 2010

April 15, 2010

With growing concerns of sophisticated cyber attacks from overseas putting U.S. critical infrastructure at risk, Lumension commissioned Clarus Research Group to conduct the industry’s first “Federal Cyber Security Outlook for 2010” study. According to the study, which reveals the current state of endpoint security and operations in the US Federal government, the top security risk facing Federal IT in the year ahead is the growing sophistication and volume of cyber attacks. Federal IT resources are challenged in meeting these risks due to a lack of collaboration across IT operations and security, growing complexity of integrating technologies, and increasing compliance audit burdens.
