DHS wireless worry.

The Department of Homeland Security's (DHS's) Inspector General (IG) recently slammed the agency for not implementing "adequate security controls to protect data transmitted on wireless networks and devices." The IG's report called DHS's wireless policy incomplete and also pointed out that none of the wireless systems in use has been certified or accredited, though DHS security policy mandates this. @ The full report and a response from DHS Chief Information Officer Steven I. Cooper are at SM Online.
