re: Energy Dept. Breach: Let's Get Back To Basics
What's hard for those outside of government to appreciate is the convoluted web of relations that exist between IT management, IT contractors and their subcontractors, where often the roles are defined and established, but the people in those roles come and go on a regular basis. Overtime, you have a bunch of folks who either no longer own the problem, or aren't paid to deal with the problem. Throw in the turnover at the top that is part of the way government works, and its easy to see how an important function like this gets lost ...until something happens.

Ugh. It's 2013. This kind of lapse shouldn't happen any longer. There's just no excuse.
