The Department of Health and Human Services’ efforts at implementing secure ID cards were rated “inadequate” by the HHS Office of Inspector General.
A new IG report said HHS’s implementation of the 2004 Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 is uneven and has some vulnerabilities that could put the agency’s security at risk.
The report said the agency’s HSPD-12 efforts lacked controls to ensure that all credentialing requirements were met, and noted that identification cards weren’t deactivated in a timely manner. It also said controls to access and manage the system were not tight enough.
