NEW! HUD OIG audit: "Assessment of ’s IT Infrastructure to Support Extensive Telework: HUD’s IT Infrastructure Needs Improvement."

HUD experienced challenges with its IT infrastructure while under mandatory telework, including significant delays in processing computer security updates; users network performance issues; user password expiration policy was not enforced; and the help desk system did not capture complete data.

As a result, HUD was vulnerable to cyber-attacks and unauthorized access, HUD’s ability to accomplish its mission could be affected, and HUD did not have assurance that all IT problems reported by users were resolved.
