GAO Report: Cybersecurity High-Risk Series: Challenges in Protecting Privacy and Sensitive Data
Published: Feb 14, 2023.
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.
