The Obama administration is turning up the pressure on agencies to accomplish four specific cybersecurity goals.

The Office of Management and Budget, the Homeland Security Department and the White House cyber coordinator’s office gave deputy secretaries a high-level scorecard highlighting their agency’s current status against goals for Trusted Internet Connections, implementing continuous monitoring and using secured identity cards to log on to computer networks.

Howard Schmidt, the White House cyber coordinator, said DHS developed the scorecard from theCyberStat sessions that have been held with agencies. During the sessions, DHS, OMB and Schmidt’s office reviewed agency progress in securing computers and networks.
