A maritime disaster 51 years ago prodded the Navy to put in place a world-class safety regime that's kept the U.S. submarine fleet safe from any major mishaps for the last four decades. After a major breach of Navy networks last year, officials say they've decided they need to replicate that engineering rigor and organizational discipline in cyberspace. Federal News Radio DoD Reporter Jared Serbu has more on what the service is calling its "cyber awakening."

When the Department of Veterans Affairs finally started transitioning its claims process from paper to digital two years ago, not everything worked perfectly.

In the fourth quarter of 2014, it had zero unplanned downtime, and VA is just about to process its one million claims in an entirely-paperless format. Dawn Bontempo, director of Veterans Benefits Management System, talked about the progress with Federal News Radio DoD Reporter Jared Serbu.

Now, the Pentagon has released a declassified version. Much of it repeats what DoD officials have said in public, but there are some eyebrow-raisers. Federal News Radio's DoD Reporter Jared Serbu writes about it in this week's Inside the Reporter's Notebook. He joined Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive with details.

Federal News Radio DoD Reporter Jared Serbu writes about it in this week's edition of Inside the Reporter's Notebook.
