In addition to NIST checklist, the following are required:

1. Encrypt all data on mobile computers/devices which carry agency data
unless the data is determined to be non-sensitive, in writing, by your
Deputy Secretary or an individual he/she may designate in writing;
2. Allow remote access only with two-factor authentication where one of
the factors is provided by a device separate from the computer gaining
3. Use a "time-out" function for remote access and mobile devices
requiring user re-authentication after 30 minutes inactivity; and
4. Log all computer-readable data extracts from databases holding
sensitive information and verify each extract including sensitive data
has been erased within 90 days or its use is still required.

That is wise. A bit late though, hence the urgency.

Now let me guess - what will the "experts", the contracting consultants
and the excellent high profile entertainers will urgently recommend in
the rest of the western states? The same; with mimics.

Kind regards
