The number of cyber attacks on DoD and Government networksʼ estimated at 400 million annually— continues to increase at an alarming pace as adversaries, both homegrown and foreign, acquire increasingly sophisticated tools with which to attempt to penetrate our systems. The combined DHS/DOD cyber budget proposals for 2012 exceed $4.2 billion with DHS nearly $1 billion and DoD requesting over $3 billion. The President has also identified cyber security as a critical imperative for national security. Increasing dependence upon the internet, declining IT budgets, and new computing paradigms (cloud, open source, etc.) have exacerbated cyber security problems.
