Infosec certification worse than inadequate
Wednesday - 7/21/2010, 8:30am EDT
- Information security certification is getting some tough criticism from the Commission on Cybersecurity for the 44th Presidency. GovInfoSecurity reports that the commission isn't satisfied with the current certification process. The commission's findings say that not only is the process inadequate, it creates - in the report's words - a dangerously false sense of security. It points out that the credentials are more concerned with compliance, not addressing risk. Former Office of Management and Budget official Frank Reeder co-wrote the white paper with Karen Evans, the former head of OMB's e-government office.
- The first National Cybersecurity Awareness Challenge is over and the winners have been announced.
