Website Compliance Tightens after Pentagon Computer System is Hacked Again
Following the theft of documents regarding the Joint Strike Fighter program, web security scanning at the Pentagon is expected to improve.
Ontario, Canada – April 28th 2009: Security experts and staff working on the Joint Strike Fighter programme are concerned following a recent hacking incident on Pentagon computer systems. This is the third such incident within the past two years and it marks the start of looking more closely at the organization’s security compliance and web security scanning efforts.
How the Pentagon will tighten their web security is yet unknown, but it’s expected that broader standards than what are already in place for most commercial enterprises - such as HIPAA, SoX, PCI 1.2 – will apply. Whilst security breaches at large Government organizations is not new, it illustrates to small- and medium-sized businesses just how common this is.
