Required by the Federal Information Security Modernization Act of 2014
Audit Initiated of DOT’s Information Security Program and Practices for Fiscal Year 2020
The Federal Information Security Modernization Act of 2014 (FISMA) requires agencies to implement information security programs. The act also requires agencies to conduct annual independent reviews to determine the effectiveness of their programs, and report the reviews’ results to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). We have contracted with CliftonLarsonAllen LLP, an independent public accounting firm, to conduct the review of the Department of Transportation’s (DOT) information security program, subject to our oversight.
The audit objective will be to determine the effectiveness of DOT’s information security program, including its performance in five function areas—Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, and Recover.
