IRS Cut Its Cyber Security Staff by 11% Over Four Years

Unless you have been under a rock all week, you should have heard that the IRS was hacked and 100K accounts were breached. At a time when account hacking is at an all-time high, the IRS has steadily been cutting back on its in-house cyber security division and diverting funds to out-sourced contractors.

In 2011, the IRS employed 410 people in its cyber security organization, but by 2014 the headcount had fallen by 11 percent to 363 people.
