Jeh Johnson, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, has said federal agencies have worked to resolve security flaws in their networks since he issued a binding operational directive in May, FCW reported Wednesday.

Sean Lyngaas writes Johnson said at a Council on Foreign Relations-hosted forum held Wednesday in Washington that agencies have collectively resolved nearly all 363 critical network security flaws they have identified over the past six months.

“Cybersecurity, for our mission, needs to exist right alongside counterterrorism,” Johnson told event audience.

He also noted the recent cyber attack at the Office of Personnel Management calls for a need to bolster cybersecurity efforts in federal government.
