The 2021 State of Secure Development & ATO in U.S. Government Agencies ┃ October 4, 2021

The acceleration of cyber attacks in 2021, against a broader set of industries including governments and public utilities, has led to a need for increased complexity of defense. The dilemma being confronted by U.S. government agencies is that while they are increasingly under attack, they are also under mounting pressure to modernize their IT systems and consistently deliver better services at lower costs.
Government agencies must comply with increasingly stringent cybersecurity requirements to obtain Authority to Operate (ATO). This report provides an overview of key findings from a comprehensive study of the topic commissioned by Security Compass.
