Deon Viergutz, President, Fort Meade Alliance

It's no surprise that guarding against cyber threats is a priority for agencies. Data breaches at Homeland Security and a computer threat at the White House are just a few of many recent cyber attacks to hit the federal government.

The Fort Meade Alliance surveyed government IT professionals and found more than 60 percent agreed cyber training should be a top priority. Deon Viergutz, president of the Fort Meade Alliance, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss the survey.

Mark Goldstein, Director of Physical Infrastructure Issues, GAO
