Report #11-P-0159March 14, 2011

What We Found

The Office of Environmental Information (OEI) does not have consistent, repeatable intrusion detection system monitoring practices in place, which inhibits EPA’s ability to monitor unusual network activity and thus protect Agency systems and associated data.
