ABSTRACT

Defense Cybersecurity: Defense Logistics Agency Needs to Address Risk Management Deficiencies in Inventory Systems, Report to the Committee on Armed Services, House of Representatives   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Highlights: "In November 2018 DOD's Survivable Logistics Task Force examined current and emerging threats to DOD logistics, including cybersecurity threats. The task force concluded that DOD's inventory management systems were potentially vulnerable to cyberattacks, and that DOD did not have corrective action plans to mitigate the potential risks posed by associated vulnerabilities. House Report 116-120, accompanying a bill for the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2020, included a provision for GAO [Government Accountability Office] to evaluate DOD's efforts to manage cybersecurity risks to the DOD supply chain. GAO's report determines the extent to which DLA [Defense Logistics Agency] has implemented risk management steps to address cybersecurity risks to its inventory management systems."
