“The Government Accountability Office (GAO) has uncovered gaps in security for wireless networks at federal agencies – gaps that hackers could exploit.

The GAO reviewed wireless network security at 24 federal agencies, concluding that the application of measures to improve security and limit vulnerability to attack ‘was inconsistent among agencies’.

Among other things, the government watchdog found ‘gaps’ in security measures for ‘dual-connected laptops and mobile devices taken on international travel’.”
