NIST is the United States' national physical laboratory, which among other matters is responsible for developing measurement standards. In 2017, NIST, located within Commerce, employed approximately 3,500 federal personnel and hosted about 4,000 associates, who include guest researchers and facility users, among others.

Abstract:

NIST is the United States' national physical laboratory, which among other matters is responsible for developing measurement standards. In 2017, NIST, located within Commerce, employed approximately 3,500 federal personnel and hosted about 4,000 associates, who include guest researchers and facility users, among others. Assessments in 2015 found issues with NIST's security culture. GAO was asked to conduct a comprehensive review of the physical security of NIST's campuses. This report examines the extent to which: (1) NIST incorporated key practices to transform the security program and address security vulnerabilities; (2) the security program's organizational structure reflects best practices; and (3) the risk management process aligns with ISC standards. GAO is making four recommendations: NIST should incorporate elements of key practices into its ongoing security efforts; Commerce, in coordination with NIST, should evaluate the current physical security management structure; and Commerce and NIST should both finalize and implement coordinated risk management policies.
