Cybersecurity Still an Uphill Battle After OPM Breach, DoD CIO Says

Though lessons learned from the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) data breach have resulted in many improvements in cybersecurity practices, the 2015 breach and subsequent cyber incidents led members at a House Oversight Committee hearing on Thursday to question the pace of Federal data protection efforts.

“Right now it is an uphill fight,” said Department of Defense CIO Terry Halvorsen. “I do believe technology will get us some of the solutions, but I do think this is much like any area in technology: We will make strides forward, people who want to use technology for bad will make strides forward, but it will be a continuing analysis and engagement. It is not going to end anytime soon.”
