Network Security in State Goverment

So today I saw this audit from the state of Kansas on their network security today and it really has me thinking.

The report says that on average their servers have 21 KNOWN vulnerabilities:

So it got me wondering:

  • Is this average for all state governments or is Kansas just that far behind?
  • What can be done to bring network security in state governments up to corporate standards?
  • Why is it so hard to get state government to take network security seriously?
