"University of Maryland, Baltimore County's cybersecurity graduate program director Richard Forno echoed Williams' analysis and said even a simple Google search could cull results that warned about our dire state of federal cybersecurity decades earlier.
"Government reports like this just literally say the same thing year after year: 'here are a couple of recommendations on how we can fix things' and a year goes by, and it says the exact same thing," Forno said.
"Looking at the recommendations — I mean, it's nice that they have recommendations — but again, why in 2018 are they still finding there's limited situational awareness? The federal government has been on the internet for 20-ish years, and they still don't know what's going on on their networks. I mean, 20 years is a long time, even by government standards," he added."
