The federal government earned a barely passing grade in enacting meaningful improvements in cybersecurity during the past year, an industry group announced today.

The Cyber Security Industry Alliance (CSIA) released its report card evaluating the federal government’s progress on 12 recommendations.

Congress and the Bush administration received one B, four Cs, six Ds and an F – a 1.4 average on a 4.0 scale, or a D+….

The report cards contain some good news: The Homeland Security Department earned credit for creating an assistant secretary for cybersecurity position, even though experts raised concerns that six months later DHS has not filled that post.
