re: Federal CIO Details Concerns On Looming Budget Cuts
"It puts us on our heels...." Note the timing of the Federal CIO's warning, coming just days before Obama's Feb. 12 exec order aimed at bolstering the cybersecurity of critical US infrastructure. Agency CIOs have gotten pretty good at managing IT mandates and priorities on flat/declining budgets, having done so for the past 4 years. But this time could be different because the funding cuts would be deeper yet the stakes higher. It's convenient to think you can have it both ways -- budget cuts AND much-improved security. But that's wishful thinking, and not something to bet your power grid and financial systems on.
