Some agencies spending 90-percent of IT budget on legacy systems — report
October 21, 2016
Some agencies are spending 90 percent or more of their IT budgets on operations and maintenance, the report released last week found.
David Stegon was a staff reporter for FedScoop and StateScoop from 2011-2014.
McAfee Co-President Michael DeCesare said he expects there to be 15 billion devices attached to the global network by 2015, creating ever-increasing risks for organizations that relay heavily on keeping information safe and secure, especially those in government.
DeCesare opened the 2012 McAfee Public Sector Summit, presented by FedScoop, on Wednesday at the Pentagon City Ritz-Carlton. DeCesare said the company will not sit still as the threat landscape changes.
"We are partners in this fight," DeCesare said. "We understand the challenges you are going through and will be right here with you."
