Is IT The Department Of 'No?'

There is an interesting conversation going on at GovLoop about how a number of government leaders are often turned down when they try to convince their IT shops to try new technologies.

“I’ve spoken to a number of government leaders who have told me, ‘I’d love to try a lot of the new technology and approaches out there, but my IT security shop will not budge and always says no. They do not want to do anything different as it’s too risky for them,’” writes GovLoop founder Steve Ressler.
