The U.S. Postal Service is “functioning normally” after a recent cyber breach that compromised customer and employee data, and the agency has yet to find evidence that hackers used the information for identity theft, according to the agency’s head of digital security.
Randy Miskanic, USPS vice president for cybersecurity, called the attack “very sophisticated” but “limited in scope” in prepared testimony for the House subcommittee on the Federal Workforce, U.S. Postal Service and the Census. The congressional hearing on the breach is set for 10:30 a.m. Wednesday.
A review after the recent breach found that the various USPS divisions do not always follow the organization’s information-security policies and that critical systems were not properly segregated from the general network, Miskanic said in his prepared testimony.
