Secret Service computers fully operational only 60 percent of the time

Posted on Sunday, February 28 2010 @ 20:57:41 CET by

ABC News reports the US Secret Service's computers are fully operational only 60 percent of the time due to hopelessly outdated systems and reliance on a mainframe from the 1980s:
Sources tell ABC News that the Secret Service was so plagued by computer problems that the agency invited the National Security Agency to formally review its information technology systems. The Secret Service's databases are outdated and users are at times unable to conduct searches from one system to another.

Lieberman says he's had "concern for a while" about the Secret Service computers. A 60 percent, fully operational average is far worse than "industry and government standards that are around 98 percent generally," Lieberman said.
