Risk Management


Risk management is important due to increased cyber incidents, continually emerging cyber threats, and the need to prevent federal tax information (FTI) breaches.

Safeguards follows a multiphase, risk-based initiative to provide more attention to higher-risk agencies.

Safeguards collects most of the data used for risk management during on-site reviews, remote assessments, out-of-cycle reviews and agency reports (CAPs and SSRs).

For those who were unable to attend the Safeguards Office Hours call we have provided links to documents associated with the call.
