But the report emphasises the importance of a holistic approach: "The time for an agency-by-agency (only) approach has passed.  We need to address these risks strategically, and where it makes sense, holistically."  It's unlikely that can be achieved by hiring hoards of eager cyber-security nerds; it sounds as though they already have enough.

As an IBM consultant once was wont to say: "We need grey hair on this one!".
