The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is a bureaucratic mess when it comes to cybersecurity - and would be inefficient and overmatched trying to protect citizens and other federal branches. This news comes as part of the "A Review of the Department of Homeland Security's Missions and Performance" report, which heavily scrutinized DHS activities.
"Widespread weaknesses in the federal government's information security practices represent a significant vulnerability that could be exploited by adversaries, creating a potential threat to national security and American citizens," according to the report.
It's not just hacktivists trying to breach US infrastructure, but foreign states with sophisticated cyberespionage programs. The DHS itself has failed in maintaining its own security protocols, let alone trying to secure other departments from potential cyberattack.
