Launched by the federal Office of Management and Budget on October 19, 2009, CyberScope is a security reporting tool. OMB mandated that agencies use CyberScope for submitting their information security data to OMB. CyberScope has the capability to receive data feeds on a recurring basis to assess the security posture of a federal agency's information infrastructure. According to OMB, this tool allows agencies to report security data on a more frequent basis.
Beginning in 2011, agencies were required to report data on a monthly basis, rather than the previous quarterly basis.
