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

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

Regarding "FBI creates knowledge wiki"

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.
