Government Accountability Office, Information Security: Concerted Effort Needed to Consolidate and Secure Internet Connections at Federal Agencies (GAO-10-237) (Apr. 12, 2010) (full-text).

Overview Edit

To reduce the threat to federal systems and operations posed by cyberattacks on the United States, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) launched, in November 2007, the Trusted Internet Connections Initiative (TIC), and later, in 2008, DHS's National Cybersecurity Protection System (NCPS), operationally known as Einstein, which became mandatory for federal agencies as part of TIC.

To further ensure that federal agencies have adequate, sufficient, and timely information to successfully meet the goals and objectives of the TIC and Einstein programs, DHS's Secretary should, to better understand whether Einstein alerts are valid, develop additional performance measures that indicate how agencies respond to alerts.
