Letter to the editor

This is in response to an FCW.com survey question that asked "What is the primary obstacle to improving information security at federal agencies?"

The primary issue here is the lack of a concerted, single focus effort headed by one person who has the authority to develop and implement, with the appropriate budget, a unified security policy. Without that, it doesn't much matter what else happens.
