Security may be lacking
A report from Owl Cybersecurity reveals the truth behind what we've known for a while: Cybersecurity is a bit weak in the US government. So weak, in fact, that the average government agency has five times greater exposure on the dark web than corporate agencies.
That's a lot of potentially dangerous data floating around in a space dominated by hackers, cybercriminals, and other unsavory types.
The report lists a total of 59 government agencies, ranked by the size of their darknet footprint, and it's topped by these 10.
