The Air Force thinks it's done a good job of making sure its IT networks are protected from cyber threats, but that's only 20 percent of the cyber problem. A brand new task force will try to take an enterprise approach to protecting the other 80 percent of Air Force systems that are vulnerable to cyber threats, including weapons systems and critical base infrastructure. Federal News Radio DoD Reporter Jared Serbu has the story.

The Army says it's taking the DoD directive to trim its headquarters staff extremely seriously. And that's not just because it will save money. The service's number two civilian sees it as an opportunity to flatten what he calls a "sclerotic" bureaucracy, which does a poor job of responding to changing circumstances and urgent needs. Federal News Radio DoD Reporter Jared Serbu has the details.

The commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service says this is the last year his agency will impose a hiring freeze -- not because the IRS' budget situation has gotten any better, but because several consecutive years of freezes have brought the demographics of its workforce severely out of whack, with very few young employees in its ranks. Federal News Radio DoD Reporter Jared Serbu has more details.

The Navy is in the middle of a long push to overhaul its personnel practices. Navy officials think those practices are too rigid, and that they're based on concepts of talent management that are really outdated. Officials want new data analytics capabilities to help determine what's good and bad about the current system, and they're asking industry for help. Federal News Radio DoD Reporter Jared Serbu has the details.

Even if Congress finally finds a way around sequestration, the drawdown plan the Army has already laid out would take it down to a size of 450,000 soliders within the next five years. Officials said they won't be able to shed 40,000 personnel just through attrition. As Federal News Radio's Jared Serbu reports, the Army is expected to involuntarily separate at least 14,000 more soldiers, and thousands more if the budget caps stay in effect.
