When federal contractors share sensitive data – including pay data – with the OFCCP, data security is always a concern. Is your data any less secure during the COVID-19 pandemic as more compliance officers than usual work from home?
Last week, OFCCP addressed this concern with a bulletin entitled, “OFCCP is Committed to Keeping Your Data Safe”. At the heart of OFCCP’s bulletin, the Agency says that OFCCP’s network storage of contractor data
is only accessible using government-issued computers through the agency’s secure VPN.
Regarding the secure transfer of data to and from the Agency (as opposed to data storage), OFCCP says contractors “have the option of sending their data to OFCCP via their company’s secure data or email portals.”
