Jared Serbu, DoD Reporter, Federal News Radio

Military leaders up to and including the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff say cyber attacks by a sophisticated nation state are near the top of the list of things they worry about. From that point of view, a new Pentagon report has to make them worry a bit more. It finds that far too many of DoD's own networks aren't up to the challenge of defending against amateur cyber attackers. On In Depth with Francis Rose, Federal News Radio DoD Reporter Jared Serbu talks about it as part of this week's edition of Inside the Reporter's Notebook.

When the Department of Veterans Affairs started building a new state-of-the-art hospital in Denver, it was supposed to cost $600 billion and be finished by 2014. Today, it's less than half complete, the price tag has doubled and it's likely to go even higher. As Federal News Radio's Jared Serbu reports, the VA is turning to the Army Corps of Engineers to help avoid similar blunders in the future.
