The US Department of Homeland Security is running dozens of unpatched databases, some of which are rated "secret" and even "top secret," according to an audit.Top. Men.
An inspection [PDF] of the department's IT infrastructure found huge security gaps, including the fact that 136 systems had expired "authorities to operate" – meaning that no one was in charge of keeping them updated. Of the 136, 17 were classified as "secret" or "top secret."
I know that the problem of "what's on the network" is really hard (actually, it really is). But if your department has the word "Security" in it, it seems reasonable to think that you'd be better at it than other people. Especially if some of the stuff is Top Secret.
