Abstract:

Federal government agencies are the frequent target of cybersecurity attacks. No agency is immune to attack and the list of federal agencies compromised by hackers continues to grow. The number of data breaches agencies have reported in recent years is not surprising given the current cybersecurity posture of the federal government. This report documents the extent to which the federal government is the target of cybersecurity attacks, how key federal agencies have failed to address vulnerabilities in their IT infrastructure, and how these failures have left America's sensitive personal information unsafe and vulnerable to theft. Protecting this information from cybersecurity attacks could not be more important.
