Agencies Need to do better
What's telling in this report: GAO estimates that the 24 major federal agencies did not effectively or consistently demonstrate actions taken in response to a detected cyber incident in about 65 percent of reported incidents. for Agencies, for instance, did not always demonstrate that they had determined the impact of an incident.
