ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a study by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) on the extent to which sector plans are updated to address Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) cyber security requirements and assesses whether these plans provide for effective implementation. GAO discovers that agencies made limited progress in updating their plans to address cyber elements. DHS is recommended to examine whether planning processes should be continued as the approach to cyber security.
