GAO Report: Cybersecurity High-Risk Series: Challenges in Protecting Privacy and Sensitive Data

Published: Feb 14, 2023.

Fast Facts:

Federal systems are vulnerable to cyberattacks. Our High Risk report identified 10 critical actions for addressing federal cybersecurity challenges.

In this report, the last in a series of four, we cover the 2 actions related to Protecting Privacy and Sensitive Data:

  • Improve federal efforts to protect privacy and sensitive data, such as reducing the cybersecurity risks in retirement plans
  • Improve the protection of federally collected and maintained personal and sensitive data

We’ve made 236 public recommendations in this area since 2010. Nearly 60% of those recommendations had not been implemented as of December 2022.
