Site Technical Assessment Review - January 2024

Background  

The U.S. Postal Service operates more than 8,500 automated systems and equipment to move and deliver nearly half the world’s mail. It deploys computer systems and equipment that manage, monitor, and control a variety of mail functions. Without proper controls, there is an increased risk of damage to essential equipment, which could result in delays in mail delivery or injury to Postal Service personnel. Whether it’s important documents — such as passports or bank statements — packages, or vital communications, the reliable processing of USPS mail is essential to ensure timely delivery.  

Recommendations  

We made 14 recommendations, including for postal management to address vulnerabilities identified, to develop and enforce security controls for doors and badge readers, to implement and enforce secure account configuration, to regularly check controlled areas for environmental hazards, and to install uninterruptable power supplies in all server racks or document exceptions to policy.
