The Markup: Nov. 9, 2017 | Federal Technology News & Government Analysis


This week in The Markup, we explore how technology is transforming the way our government – particularly departments within the executive branch – works. We’ll look at the Defense Department’s budget, Army and Navy cyber capabilities, CDM government-wide cyber dashboard, and State Department’s IRM request. Join us as we explore the latest news federal technology has to offer.
