Federal and enterprise CIOs across the United States need to plan for any adverse effects that may occur as a result of this fiscal cliff.

With fiscal cliff discussions’ gaining fearful momentum around the country, the IT sector is especially anxious about what spending cuts may mean to the industry. The Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security are a focus of budgetary cuts and are the leaders of federal cyber security advances. In this time of uncertainty, awareness is key to enduring the never slowing pace of mobile innovation and adoption.

“Federal and enterprise CIOs across the United States need to plan for any adverse effects that may occur as a result of this fiscal cliff,” said Ward Rotter, AirPatrol CFO. “A reduction of federal spending has a snowball effect on technology vendors, security analysts and more. The best way to prevent cyber security issues in your enterprise is through continuous monitoring and complete wireless situational awareness.”

Lockheed Martin recently announced that 85% of government technology decision makers at federal, defense, and intelligence agencies see cyber security as a high priority – even over big data and cloud solutions. Cyber security budget costs could greatly affect the industry’s innovation rate as the United States is home to 40% of all InfoSec professionals, according to ISC2.

“With knowledge of what your cyber environment consists of, including all cellular and Wi-Fi devices, CIOs and IT departments are enabled to create the most appropriate mobile device policies like BYOD,” continued Rotter. “After all, how can you fix a problem if you don’t know it exists?”
