Information Security: Agencies Need to Improve Oversight of Contractor Controls
Gregory C. Wilshusen (au)
Federal agencies often rely on contractors to operate computer systems and process information on their behalf. Federal law and policy require that agencies ensure that contractors adequately protect these systems and information. This report assessed the extent to which (1) selected agencies oversee the security and privacy controls for systems that are operated by contractors on their behalf; and (2) executive branch agencies with governmentwide guidance and oversight responsibilities have taken steps to assist agencies in ensuring implementation of information security and privacy controls by such contractors. The report found that while the six federal agencies it examined generally established security and privacy requirements and planned for assessments to determine the effectiveness of contractor implementation of controls, five of the six were inconsistent in overseeing the execution and review of those assessments, resulting in security lapses. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
