FAQs: Cybersecurity Modernization Initiative

Recent cybersecurity breaches have highlighted the threat of external attacks on federal government data systems. For this reason, we review and update our data, applications, and systems that serve our claimants. This ensures the continued protection of sensitive personal data. Through our cybersecurity modernization initiative, we will pause some functions of our program.

This pause is estimated to last two to four months. DCAS will provide regular updates during this period on our website. We anticipate most of the program’s core functions will resume after the review is completed. DCAS is committed to completing this work as quickly as possible.
