The Department of Homeland Security‘s inspector general officeÂ has released a new report that identified security vulnerabilities in DHS’Â internal systems.
DHS’ OIG said TuesdayÂ theÂ vulnerabilities affect the Immigration and Customs Enforcement, National Protection and Programs Directorate and the Secret Service.
âWhile our audit showed improved coordination between DHS components in carrying out their cybersecurity functions, we have identified duplication of effort and lack of effective policies and controls,â said Inspector General John Roth.
The report recommends DHS establish a cyber training program, form a cybersecurity data sharing system, strengthen information systems and implement full compliance with information security policies.
ICE, NPPD and Secret Service officials said stop-gap funding bills from Congress have restricted their ability to conduct cyber training programs, Reuters reported Tuesday.
