National Security Archive Launches Cyber Vault Web Site

Washington, D.C., March 30, 2016 – The National Security Archive is pleased to announce the launch of its new Cyber Vault project web site.

The growing prominence of cyber activity as a global security concern with tangible effects on everyday lives has given rise to the production of a vast amount of documentation by governments and private industry.  The Cyber Vault will serve as a centralized repository for key parts of the documentary record on this critical topic.

Directed by Jeffrey T. Richelson, an international expert and widely published author on intelligence and national security issues, the Cyber Vault project will add to its holdings on a regular basis.  All materials will be fully searchable and permanently stored on the project site.  The project aims to enhance the National Security Archive’s mission to broaden public understanding of the nature, history and conduct of U.S. foreign and national security policy.

Funding for The Cyber Vault has been provided by The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.

OPM’s Return to Paper Security Clearance Processing Roils Contractors, Lawmakers – Oversight – GovExec.com

The Office of Personnel Management has decided to take a step back in an attempt to move forward after hackers breached files containing sensitive data on millions of current and former federal employees, but some stakeholders are not fully on board with the plan.The agency sent an advisory last week to federal offices instructing them to temporarily collect paper copies of employees’ background investigation forms, rather than processing them electronically. OPM reached that decision after it shut down e-QIP, the Web tool that tracks employee background investigations, due to vulnerabilities that led to a breach of the personal information contained on the forms housed in the system.
