OIG: NASA’s Poor Cybersecurity is Operational Threat

Government inspectors have uncovered serious deficiencies in NASA’s information security program which they claim could threaten operations.

The findings come from the latest Office of the Inspector General (OIG) review of the space agency for fiscal year 2018, under the Federal Information Security Modernization Act of 2014 (FISMA).

Unfortunately, the report assessed NASA’s cybersecurity program as at Level 2 (Defined) for the second year in a row — well short of the Level 4 (Managed and Measurable) required by the Office of Management and Budget in order to be judged effective.
