These are the stories Federal News Radio reporters are working on today.

  • Few agencies know the true health of their computer networks. Federal News Radio’s Jason Miller tells us about the steps some CIOs are taking to have a more complete view.
  • One Homeland Security official says rise in domestic terrorism isn’t an anomaly – it’s the new norm and security agencies need to operate accordingly. Bart Johnson is the principle deputy undersecretary of the Office of Intelligence and Analysis at the Department of Homeland Security. He says federal intelligence agencies can’t handle the spike in homegrown threats alone – they need help from state, local and tribal law enforcement groups. WFED’s Meg Beasley will have the full report.
  • The Army says it’s getting closer to determining the path forward on issuing smartphones to soldiers in the field. It’s something the service says could eventually provide warfighters with an all-in-one platform for training, battlefield communications and more. WFED’s Jared Serbu will have the full report.
