    In addition to NIST checklist, the following are required:

    1. Encrypt all data on mobile computers/devices which carry agency data
    unless the data is determined to be non-sensitive, in writing, by your
    Deputy Secretary or an individual he/she may designate in writing;
    2. Allow remote access only with two-factor authentication where one of
    the factors is provided by a device separate from the computer gaining
    access;
    3. Use a "time-out" function for remote access and mobile devices
    requiring user re-authentication after 30 minutes inactivity; and
    4. Log all computer-readable data extracts from databases holding
    sensitive information and verify each extract including sensitive data
    has been erased within 90 days or its use is still required.

    That is wise. A bit late though, hence the urgency.

    Now let me guess - what will the "experts", the contracting consultants
    and the excellent high profile entertainers will urgently recommend in
    the rest of the western states? The same; with mimics.

    Kind regards
