A recent study conducted by CDW-G has found that the number of threats against Federal civilian and DoD networks has increased or remained the same in the past year. Close to a third of federal organizations experience at least one cyber attack per day.

The report is based on a survey of around 300 IT professionals in government.  The majority of IT professionals surveyed stated that their needs have increased significantly in order to deal with the growing number of threats. However, only half claim to have the budget necessary to carry out effective cyber security. The respondents cited a variety of issues that influenced their cyber vulnerability. These included accidental insider threats along with attacks from external forces. The top faces that the majority of the IT professionals said they faced were inappropriate employee activity, malware and access by remote-users. The full report also includes a series of suggestions that federal agencies can implement to increase their security. The report can be found here.
