ABSTRACT

Serial No. 109-139: No Computer System Left Behind: A Review of the 2005 Federal Computer Security Scorecards, Hearing before the Committee on Government Reform, House of Representatives, One Hundred Ninth Congress, Second Session, March 16, 2006   [open pdf - 3MB]

From the opening statement of Committee Chairman Tom Davis, "Today, the committee is releasing its Federal computer security scorecards and will examine the status of agency compliance with the Federal Information Security Management Act [FISMA]. Information technology and the Internet drive our economy and help the Federal Government to operate with greater efficiency and cost savings. E-commerce, information sharing, and Internet transactions, such as online tax filings, are so common that we take them for granted. Not until an incident such as the potential BlackBerry shutdown--which was recently settled--are we reminded of our dependence on IT and how difficult it is for us to function without it." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Thomas Hughes, Gregory C. Wilshusen, Scott Charbo, Tom Davis, Karen S. Evans, Thomas P. Hughes, Robert F. Lentz, Henry A. Waxman, and Thomas Wiesner.
