Watchdog Report: Secret Service Refuses to Turn Over Mandatory Security Data

By Steve Neavling

A watchdog report has sharply criticized the Secret Service for refusing to disclose mandatory data on its computer security systems to Homeland Security, making it difficult to measure the department’s security practices, the Hill reports.

The report by the DHS Office of Inspector General condemned the Secret Service, saying its “refusal to provide the required data created a significant deficiency in the Department’s information security program.”

“Your agency’s action puts at risk its own information systems and those of the Department as a whole,” DHS Inspector General John Roth wrote in an Oct. 29 letter to acting Secret Service director Joseph Clancy.

Clancy took over the Secret Service recently after the resignation of director Julia Pierson, who came under fierce criticism for her handling of security.

“I am deeply concerned that your agency’s unwillingness to provide the required continuous monitoring data feeds prevents the Department from overseeing and managing an effective information security program,” Roth wrote to the Secret Service.
