Audit Reports

Protect the Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability of SSA’s information Systems and Data

SSA’s information technology (IT) supports every aspect of SSA’s mission, whether it is serving the public during in-person interviews or online, routing millions of telephone calls on its 800-number, or posting millions of earner wage reports annually. Disruptions to the integrity or availability of its information systems would dramatically affect SSA’s ability to serve the public and meet its mission. Also, SSA’s systems contain personally identifiable information, such as SSNs, which, if not protected, could be misused by identity thieves.

Our Audit reports may contain sensitive and confidential information requiring safeguarding or limited disclosure consistent with law, regulations and Government-wide policies. Previously, we limited the distribution of reports containing this type of information. We now redact that specific information to allow maximum distribution of all reports.
