The White House has released a proposal that seeks to update the federal government’s information management principles, Nextgov reported Friday.
Aliya Sternstein writes the proposal’s draft minimum requirements aim to prevent abuse of authorized privileges and mitigate the risk of malicious activity.
The proposal also calls on agencies to monitor and audit network users’ activities in order to avoid insider threat, according to the report.
White House has also recommended draft policies for agencies to manage information technology investments and centralize technology acquisition processes, Nextgov reports.
Comment submissions for the draft proposal will be accepted over the next 30 days and the White House plans to release a final set of strategies in December, Sternstein reports.
