Abstract:

For many years, GAO has reported that weaknesses in information security are a widespread problem that can have serious consequences, such as intrusions by malicious users, compromised networks, and the theft of intellectual property and personally identifiable information, and has identified information security as a governmentwide high-risk issue since 1997. Concerned by reports of significant vulnerabilities in federal computer systems, Congress passed the Federal Information Security Management Act of 2002 (FISMA), which authorized and strengthened information security program, evaluation, and reporting requirements for federal agencies. In accordance with the FISMA requirement that the Comptroller General report periodically to Congress, GAO's objectives were to evaluate (1) the adequacy and effectiveness of agencies' information security policies and practices and (2) federal agencies' implementation of FISMA requirements. To address these objectives, GAO analyzed agency, inspectors general, Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and GAO reports. GAO is recommending that the Director of OMB take several actions, including revising guidance.
