CBP Needs a Comprehensive Process for Conducting Covert Testing and Resolving Vulnerabilities (Redacted) [open pdf - 2MB]
From the Document: "U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) does not comprehensively plan and conduct its covert tests, use covert test results to address vulnerabilities, or widely share lessons learned. In particular, CBP's two covert testing groups do not use risk assessments or intelligence to plan and conduct covert tests at ports of entry and U.S. Border Patrol checkpoints, do not plan coordinated tests, and do not design system-wide tests. This occurred because CBP has not provided adequate guidance on risk- and intelligence-based test planning, directed the groups to coordinate, given them the necessary authority, or established performance goals and measures for covert testing."
