Here we are three-quarters of the way through the month of February and there has still not been a CFATS Fact Sheet update for the site security plan implementation numbers for the month of January (the January CFATS Fact Sheet covers, of course, December). I understand that DHS is in no way obligated to keep the public up-to-date on how well they are overcoming the problems that previously plagued ISCD (just a little touch of sarcasm there, I apologize), but when they started publishing these monthly updates back in April of last year they established an expectation that they would be published in a timely manner.
It will be interesting this week because I expect that we could see two updates published one for the January data and the other for some portion of February. Or, ISCD could just wait until Wednesday to publish the combined data for the two months.
The reason for an early publishing of the February data? I expect that Director Wulf will probably be making a trip to Capitol Hill for a hearing on HR 4007 on Thursday. I’ll have more information on that hearing in my weekly congressional hearing blog post.
