“Trying to keep in step with the increasing need for cybersecurity capabilities, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Cybersecurity and Communications will be reshuffling its employees and adding two more divisions.

Since its creation in 2006, the CS&C Office consisted of the National Communications System (including its National Coordinating Center for communications), National Cyber Security Division (and its US-CERT), and the Office of Emergency Communications.”

    A separate entity should exist whereby all strategically important organisations should be required by law to send complete copies of all their operational software updated periodically. The frequency of the updates required would be determined in accordance with the entity’s importance.

    Glad to see the two additional divisions, offsite back up and updates often get left behind and they are the most critical. We get so caught up in the present situations that keep us moving, and put some of the most important parts aside until we end up scrambling to retrieve months of hard work.

    Good job!
