A Government Accountability Office report out today highlights significant privacy lapses within federal agencies. The Senate Intelligence Committee says a key U.S. counterintelligence agency isn't keeping pace with evolving national security threats. And the hunt for more details about a U.S. courts hack. This is CyberScoop for Sept. 22.

U.S. agencies fail to implement privacy plans

More than two decades after being tasked with establishing privacy programs, 14 federal agencies have failed to address key practices for protecting the sensitive personal data of Americans, a new Government Accountability Office report finds. Agencies that have failed to implement full privacy plans include the Office of Personnel Management, which was the target of a data breach in 2015 that exposed the sensitive personal information of more than 20 million government employees. Tonya Riley reports.

Blistering intelligence agency critique

The National Counterintelligence and Security Center is paralyzed by dysfunction, lack of resources and confusion about its mission, leaving a key national security asset dangerously vulnerable, U.S. senators said Wednesday. The center’s inability to adapt to the growing role of cyber and the “whole-of-society threat landscape” are among several factors contributing to the organization’s decline, according to a blistering 153-page Senate Select Committee on Intelligence report. “Intelligence traditions have changed dramatically from the post-war era, from the Cold War era,” Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Mark Warner, D-Va., said at a Wednesday hearing focused on the report, which comes at a time when the senator said the U.S. is locked in a battle with China that will “define who becomes the security and economic leader of the 21st century.” Suzanne Smalley has more.

Wyden pushes for info on U.S. courts hack

The agency responsible for answering questions about a significant breach of the U.S. federal courts system is “stonewalling” congressional efforts to get additional information and specifics, Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., said Wednesday. Wyden’s comment comes after the Administrative Office of the United States Courts declined to respond to a series of his questions about the breach. In a July 28 letter, he asked the agency to provide details on what it knows about the severity of the hack and the timing of the digital intrusion that was revealed publicly during a July House Judiciary Committee hearing. AJ Vicens reports.
