"We performed an audit of the Transportation Security Administrationís (TSA) privacy stewardship. Our audit objective was to determine whether TSAís plans and activities instill and promote a privacy culture and comply with federal privacy laws and regulations. As part of this audit, we surveyed 2,285 TSA employees on their knowledge of the Privacy Act, the proper handling of personally identifiable information, privacy incident response, and privacy stewardship. The results of this survey are discussed throughout the report."
