The Obama administration this week teamed with Cisco, Microsoft, HP and others to roll out what it called an "IT Training and Certification Partnership" designed to get thousands of service members into the information technology world.
The Associated Press's Twitter account was hijacked this afternoon and used to tweet a false message that reported two explosions at the White House had left U.S. President Barack Obama injured. One security expert says the incident underscores the need to adopt out-of-band two-factor authentication and keystroke encryption.
The Twitter account of the Associated Press was hacked today and a bogus tweet was sent claiming President Obama had been hurt in an explosion.
The White House has threatened to veto the controversial Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) in its present form, citing concerns that the bill does not adequately prevent sharing of irrelevant personal information.
Senators renew work on cybersecurity legislation in wake of Obama's executive order. Department of Homeland Secretary reiterates administration's position that a comprehensive bill is needed to expand White House directive.
The U.S. government needs to stop wasting money on doomed IT projects and update outdated technology to better serve residents, U.S. President Barack Obama said Thursday.
White House Chief Information Officer Vivek Kundra will explain how the federal government plans to offer cloud computing services to U.S. agencies at a Silicon Valley press event set for next Tuesday.
The real impact of the nearly $800 billion stimulus package on shrinking IT employment remains in the future, despite President Obama's plan, announced today, to expedite hiring of some 600,000 people over the next 100 days. Many of the jobs in this summer boost will be aimed at the construction and education fields and at young people.
U.S. President Barack Obama's announcement Friday of a new cybersecurity push by the U.S. government won widespread praise from the technology industry, with many people saying his attention to the issue is a major step toward better securing the nation's computer networks.
