Senate report: Billions of dollars at risk from shaky Pentagon IT programs

A new bipartisan report from the Senate's Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations called the Air Force's now-canceled Expeditionary Combat Support System "one of the most egregious examples of mismanagement by the DoD in recent memory."

Mari Galloway, Women's Society of Cyber Jutsu

It's no secret the U.S. faces some big challenges with the size and capacity of its cybersecurity workforce. But putting a finer point on those challenges isn't as easy.

Mari Galloway, director of finance for the Women's Society of Cyber Jutsu, was one of the 45 participants in this week's event. She tells In Depth with Francis Rose about a few of her main takeaways.
