Office of Personnel Management – Update

Interim Status Report on OPM’s Responses to the Flash Audit Alert by Patrick E. McFarland, Inspector General.

You may have missed the interim report from Inspector General Patrick McFarland on the OPM’s efforts to correct its ongoing cybersecurity issues.

The question that wasn’t asked during the most recent Republican clown car debate was how each contender would respond to an agency such as the OPM, which:

…rejects the recommendation to adopt project management best practices, and states that it adheres to its own system development lifecycle policy which is based on federal standards.

Does that sound familiar in your organization?

Solving the command and control issues over OPM are a necessary first step towards removing the OPM as a government wide security risk.
