According to a recent article in e Week News, U.S. lawmakers are contemplating new enforcement tools and financial incentives to spur better security practices after a report card on federal information security showed government CIOs managed a barely passing D+ average. "I think they take their eye off the ball," said Rep. Tom Davis, R-Va., chairman of the House Committee on Government Reform. "This demands constant attention. Every day they have to be thinking about this."
