We announced the subject audit on April 2, 2019, (attached). The objective was to determine whether the DoD was adequately responding to and recovering from cyber incidents to mitigate adverse operational and technical impacts in accordance with Federal and DoD guidance. We are terminating this audit because continuing with the project would mean duplicating the work of another team and represent inefficient use of DoD OIG resources. We appreciate the courtesies extended to the staff during the audit.
