Is the White House Skirting Governmentwide Cybersecurity Rules?

The White House’s Executive Office of the President hasn’t submitted reports detailing compliance with federal cybersecurity rules for the past three years, according to a letter to President Obama written by the chairmen of two Senate committees with oversight of federal technology efforts.

The apparent lack of annual reporting is even more striking considering the White House’s unclassified computer networks were breached by hackers in the fall, purportedly from Russia, leading to temporary outages as officials worked to suppress malicious activity.
