Report: Pentagon Made Fewer than Half of Recommended Cyber Fixes Last Year

In the span of one year, the Pentagon addressed fewer than half of the recommendations to shore up cyber vulnerabilities identified by its inspector general’s office.

All told, the Defense Department addressed 93 of 229 cyber recommendations made by the IG’s office between Aug. 1 2014 and July 31, 2015, according to a summary of a new audit released by the IG’s office.

The IG’s office did not publicly release the report itself.
