The Obama administration has received less-than-stellar marks in a
recent report card on its cybersecurity policies, earning grades in the
B to D range.

The National Security Cyberspace Institute examined the administration’s
record of cybersecurity accomplishments in a white paper published Jan.

NSCI awarded grades for progress against 10 near-term recommendations
included in the White House’s 60-day Cyberspace Policy Review released
in 2009.

“We awarded grades solely on our view of actual progress – not on good
intentions, flowery rhetoric, the number of meetings held, commissions
commissioned, or number of times administration officials have mentioned
the word ‘cyber,’ ” NSCI wrote.
