I recently registered for a website hosted by a government agency that handles some of the most sensitive personal information available within U.S. Government. While the site is only a simple scheduling system, imagine my dismay when I received an email confirming my registration that included both my username in password in the email body. That email demonstrates that, despite all of the reported attention to security over the past several years, especially within the Federal Government, we are failing to build an effective information security culture.
In the modern IT environment, rapid results are critical. But, we can't achieve them by doing things the same way we did before. The problem is different now than before and the Federal government needs innovative solutions to address it. We're working hard at InfusionPoints to help be part of the solution.
