More of the “reset, it’s called leaving the doors open, here and all over the world.
WASHINGTON — The State Department said Friday it was “implementing improvements” to its unclassified email systems, months after a breach in its networks.
“As part of the Department of State’s ongoing effort to ensure the integrity of our unclassified networks against cyber attacks, the Department is implementing improvements to the security of its main unclassified network during a short, planned outage of some internet-linked systems,” State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in a statement.
“The Department continues to monitor and respond to activity of concern on our unclassified network,” Psaki said. “Such activity is something we take very seriously.”
Last November, the department confirmed that it had detected “activity of concern” in its systems, but ensured the public that its classified systems had not been breached. Psaki’s statement on Friday said the breach had also not touched its “core financial, consular, and human resource systems.”
