Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe has said the U.S. Postal Service is implementing internal scans of its network in order to maintain and protect the system from cyber attacks, FCW reported Tuesday.

Donahoe told a National Press Club event in Washington, D.C., that the USPS followed industry and government recommendations for best practices to secure its network at the time of the breach in September 2014, Colby Hochmuth reports.

He said the USPS rolled out several changes to its network in the months after the attack, according to the report.

“There’s a lot of new products on the market right now that are not even for sale yet that we are using,” Donahoe told the event.

Hochmuth writes the USPS also hired a third party to review its cybersecurity program.
