Full Compliance With Trusted Internet Connection Requirements Is Progressing; However, Improvements Would Strengthen Security. September 17, 2013. Reference Number: 2013-20-107. Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration

“The Trusted Internet Connection (TIC) initiative is one of the Administration’s three priorities to information improve cybersecurity and the security of Federal information systems. The TIC initiative aims to improve agencies’ security posture and incident response capabilities through enhanced monitoring and situational awareness of all external network connections. The IRS has progressed steadily towards implementing TIC requirements; however, additional improvements could strengthen the security posture of its TICs. Security weaknesses within these TICs could expose taxpayer data to unauthorized access or loss.”
