|Title:||Inspection of Information Security at the Tuscaloosa VA Medical Center in Alabama|
|VA Office:||Veterans Health Administration (VHA)
|Report Author:||Office of Audits and Evaluations
|Report Type:||Information Security Inspection
The VA Office of Inspector General (OIG) conducts information security inspections to assess whether VA facilities are meeting federal security requirements. They are typically conducted at selected facilities that have not been assessed in the sample for the annual audit required by the Federal Information Security Modernization Act of 2014 (FISMA) or at facilities that previously performed poorly. The OIG selected the Tuscaloosa VA Medical Center in Alabama because it had not been previously visited as part of the annual FISMA audit.
