Effective remediation of security events is critical to the integrity of Postal Service systems and to achieving goals of uninterrupted service delivery, preservation of consumer trust, compliance with regulations and standards, and remaining competitive in the digital marketplace.
USPS continues to respond to cybersecurity threats every day. Cybersecurity protects the Postal Service's infrastructure against threats that could disrupt operations to the 45,000 point-of-sale terminals, 2,837 retail kiosks, 8,500 mail processing equipment pieces, usps.com, and more.
The OIG is determining whether USPS management appropriately responded to and mitigated a publicly identified security weakness that affected a widely used system.
- Are you aware of any cybersecurity incidents related to USPS information technology assets, specifically those publicly available?
- Do you have any concerns related to the cybersecurity incident response capability over USPS information technology assets?
- In your opinion, what is the biggest strength or weakness regarding USPS’s cybersecurity incident response capability?
