Regarding "Chertoff urges caution on potential of new cybersecurity laws"

Regarding "DHS drops potential pay-for-performance plans"

Now we just need to get DOD off of the disastrous National Security Personnel System.

Regarding "FBI creates knowledge wiki"

Why oh why is the FBI creating its own wiki? Why not just use Intellipedia? Why the duplication of efforts?

Regarding "DHS seeks model telework demonstration program"

 I recently attended a seminar hosted as part of the FCW-GTSI Technology Leadership Series 2008, on Aug. 13. The seminar included a session which communicated the success of the Department of Transportation in a telework exercise held during the recent visit by Pope Benedict to the Washington area. The DOT may be able to assist the Department of Homeland Security in their efforts.
