White House says its federal agencies can’t keep track of their own data

Most federal agencies have no way of effectively detecting when data is stolen, found a new, 22-page report published by the White House Office of Management and Budget last week. 73 percent of federal agency programs simply can’t detect when large amounts of information leave their networks.

The report says there were more than 30,000 cyber attacks on the federal government in 2016 that resulted in lost information and compromised systems, but in 38 percent of those attacks (nearly 12,000 of the incidents), the government had no idea where the attacks came from or how they got into the systems.
