This breach in the greater context of other compromises and data losses within the federal government should cause everyone to pause.  Great debate has taken place in our nation’s capital over the last several months concerning cyber legislation to encourage data exchanges between and within the public and private sectors and to more firmly regulate cyber preparedness for US businesses.  Yet in that same period of time, we have this latest breach couples with significant losses at the State Department and the IRS.  I sincerely believe our government needs to have an inward focus in the short term before pushing for larger legislative initiatives.
