We plan to begin the subject audit in December 2022. We are conducting this audit as mandated by the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2015 (CISA). CISA requires the Inspectors General of seven Federal entities—the Departments of Commerce, Defense, Energy, Homeland Security, Justice, and Treasury, and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence—to jointly report to Congress no later than 2 years after the enactment date of CISA, and once every 2 years thereafter, on the actions of the Executive branch of the U.S. Government to implement the CISA requirements. The objective of this joint audit is to assess the DoD actions taken in 2021and 2022 to implement CISA requirements(attached). The Inspectors General will submit an unclassified, interagency report to Congress by December 2023.
