Here is a warm and fuzzy article for everyone paying attention to the budget debate in Washington, DC. Apparently, IT security and systems upgrades have not been a focus for some time in the Department of Defense, or upgrades have been a focus and Congress has not found a mechanism to provide the funds. Let’s all hope for the latter.
In case the title is not clear, the article details the fact that up to 75% of core infrastructure systems at DoD are still running Windows XP or older operating systems. That is most certainly a cringe-worthy fact.
