While the overall grade for all agencies was a C-, the results varied from agency to agency. "[The] Agencies are rated on their annual tests of information security, their plans of action and milestones or corrective action plans, whether they certify and accredit their systems as secure, how well they manage the configuration of their computers to ensure security, how they detect and react to breaches of security, their training programs and the accuracy of their inventories."
