As of April 1, the FBI will be using new guidelines to ensure the data that is stored on FBI servers is safe and secure.
The new rules are being written to address cybersecurity threats posed by cyber criminals.
Among the new security measures the FBI is taking is the creation of a new Security Audit Initiative to evaluate the cybersecurity posture of FBI data and to make recommendations for improvements.
The FBI also is working to address the threat posed by malicious software in the data, and will be expanding the ability of FBI employees to share and audit its security information, which it already shares with other federal agencies, to allow the agency to better assess cybersecurity threats.
The FBI is also working on a new report that will outline cybersecurity risks to the FBI, and the FBI says it will use this report to inform the government about the vulnerabilities in data security.
