Recently, the Government Accountability Office, the US government watchdog found that cybersecurity practices for 5 major weapon systems were inadequate. There were security gaps in the acquisition process, with three of five programs reviewed lacking any cybersecurity requirements in their contract awards.
This also means:
- Supply chain poisoning and contamination and trojanising input lines remains a source of concern
- Critical projects could be compromised at will by hacker groups
- Core system and infrastructure can be rendered inoperable or inaccessible during times of crisis to degrade the quality of response
- Laterally moving malware could target other wings of the US government as well by exploiting such vulnerabilities
