WASHINGTON (AP) — Leaders from across the District of Columbia municipal government gathered last April for a summit on cybersecurity, where they agreed in writing on the need to improve computer safety training for its workers. Yet nearly a year later, no organized, across-the-board training is offered for employees even though electronic data theft from governments is on the rise. Information technology experts see training as a vital component of cybersecurity and D.C. officials acknowledge their own employees should be better educated on computer use, especially as governments face increasingly sophisticated cyber-threats and as human errors have contributed to widespread data breaches. But officials say they’ve put plans for such training on the back-burner while they continue efforts to improve network security, including through new tools and products as well as additional levels of monitoring and inspection. Those improvements are more efficient and longer-lasting than educating thousands of workers who may not be in their jobs permanently, contends Rob Mancini, the District’s chief technology officer. http://washington.cbslocal.com/2013/03/05/dc-government-employees-not-yet-offered-cybersecurity-training/
