The Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA) continues to meet Federal Information Security Modernization Act (FISMA) requirements with few areas of concern, according to a report by the FLRA Office of the Inspector General (OIG) released on Oct. 30.
The inspector general (IG) did not make any new recommendations to the agency and concluded that it is actively improving its information security program. The report says that FLRA takes information security weaknesses seriously, and has completed all prior recommendations.
In 2018, the OIG made five recommendations that have since closed. FLRA purchased and deployed a patch management software, revised its Rules of Behaviors to include social media, ensured that all employees sign its Rules of Behaviors, implemented a way to automatically disable users after 180 days of inactivity, and established monthly audit log reviews.
FLRA facilitates relationships between federal agencies, labor organizations, and employees to advance efficiency.
