With 50 billion devices connected to the Internet, the rules of cybersecurity are changing. Agencies and more companies are on to the importance of cybersecurity, but they might be watching out for high-profile threats rather than more common and stealthy problems that can do lots of damage. That's what Cisco has found and will release in a report. Levi Gundert is the technical lead for Cisco's Threat Research, Analysis and Communications, or TRAC. He spoke with Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive.
A Government Accountability Office probe of USASpending.gov, the government's awards website, found that while contracting information was generally correct, only 2-to-7 percent of awards listed on the site perfectly matched agency data.

He told Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive what feds should be aware of when they're traveling.

Just as the Pentagon depends on DARPA to keep the military on the cutting edge of science and technology, so too, does the Department of Homeland Security have an ARPA to keep DHS agencies out on the technological edge. On this edition of AFCEA Answers, Dr. Adam Cox, Acting Director of the Homeland Security Advanced Projects Research Agency (HSARPA) discusses the similarities - and the differences - between his organization and DARPA. He explains how "tech foraging" allows HSARPA to meet customer needs while saving taxpayers a buck or two. And he offers an unclassified look at some forward thinking technological solutions now being developed for transportation and border security.
