Trump Administration: Tightening IT Security While Saving Tax Payers Money + More

SECURITY & IT:

Tom Bossert, President Donald Trump’s Homeland Security Advisor, spoke today about the Administration’s push to secure all government data while simultaneously driving down costs. These efforts are necessary to keep foreign powers and others from accessing confidential, or personal, information. He hopes to move a large portion of government data “into [a secured] cloud”-based system in a concerted effort to modernize and safeguard government tech security from the ground up.

Tom Bossert, President Donald Trump’s Homeland Security Advisor, spoke today about the Administration’s push to secure all government data while simultaneously driving down costs. These efforts are necessary to keep foreign powers and others from accessing confidential, or personal, information. He hopes to move a large portion of government data “into [a secured] cloud”-based system in a concerted effort to modernize and safeguard government tech security from the ground up.

During Bossert’s remarks, he set the very unnerving calculation that every federal government employee costs the US tax payer $40,000 per year in technology costs alone. Once again, that is $40,000 of your tax dollars per government employee IN ADDITION to their over-inflated salaries.  Process that for a moment. To remedy this incredible and ballooning government waste, Bossert hopes to work closely with innovative Americans in the private technology sector to bridge the gaps and seal off any inconsistencies that otherwise plague the government financially.

The Administration doubling down on security measures comes directly after the firing of former-FBI Director James Comey, who had lost the confidence of President Trump, due to his inability to handle investigations and confidential information securely.

 

SARAH IS SLAYIN’:

Meanwhile, Sarah Huckabee-Sanders, the Deputy Press Secretary, ripped into a journalist about “playing partisan games” in regards to the Comey firing. You can watch that exchange below:

SHIFT IN FOCUS FROM DRUG-USERS TO TRAFFICKERS:

Another major takeaway from today’s White House Press Briefing was the refocusing of the ‘War on Drugs’. The Drug Policy Alliance estimates that the U.S. spends somewhere around $51 billion a year on faulty and shortsighted initiatives. The new angle is to focus on the traffickers and the propagators of drug use, and not the previous full-scale focus on the impoverished and minority groups that transpired under the Clinton and Obama Administrations. The drug pushers, the traffickers, and the international distributors are now the ones in the federal government’s cross-hairs.
