One professor argues that part of the problem with outmoded technology is outmoded thinking. Kevin DeSouza, associate dean for research at the College of Public Service at Arizona State University, joins Federal Drive with Tom Temin with more on his latest Tech Tank article.
A new IBM Center for The Business of Government report says CIOs lack understanding for innovation metrics, which could grow their operations if used.
Information technology is making real-time data more readily available. Through dashboards, scorecards and heat maps, chief information officers and their tech staffs can make more informed decisions faster. But things like performance and innovation of the CIO shop itself can be tougher to measure. Kevin Desouza is an associate dean for research at the College of Public Service and Community Solutions at Arizona State University. He interviewed more than two dozen government CIOs to understand the trends, and joined the Federal Drive with Tom Temin to share the results.
The number of cyber attacks against the federal government is up almost 800 percent since 2006. And the Government Accountability Office said that trend is accelerating. Kevin Desouza is associate dean for research at the College of Public Programs, and professor for the School of Public Affairs at Arizona State University. On In Depth with Francis Rose, he said the vast majority of public agencies lack a clear cybersecurity plan.
New research shows departments do not incorporate cybersecurity efforts into their goals and objectives, said Kevin Desouza, the associate dean for research at the college of public programs at Arizona State University and a non-resident senior fellow of Governance Studies at the Brookings Institution.
