Efforts to improve defense of federal networks

DHS has the lead role in protecting federal executive branch civilian networks. It has developed an intrusion detection system that will passively observe federal executive branch network traffic for malicious activity. Further efforts are aimed at developing an intrusion prevention system for these same networks.


What is your view of these programs and what more do you think should be done?
