NTK scanning scores

Scanning snapshot. The Postal Service’s national scanning rating was 97.63 percent during the week ending Feb. 24, down from one week earlier.

Dakotas (98.78 percent) topped the districts, while Western (97.96 percent) led the areas.

To see the latest results, go to the Enterprise Analytics site and select “Scanning” on the left hand side, and then “DES 2 — Scan Performance” from the drop-down options.

Training reminder. Some Postal Service employees are required to complete a new four-part cybersecurity training course by March 31.

The course, which is available on the Learning Management System, is designed to help business system owners understand how to secure data and manage operations.

All business system owners and their delegates with active ACE IDs must complete the course.

The four parts are: Cyber Landscape (course number 10026229); Data, Data Security, and Data Auditing (10026228); Operations Management and Risk (10026227); and System Resiliency and Disaster Recovery (10026201).

If you miss the March 31 deadline, your ACE system access will be limited until the course is completed. The CyberSafe at USPS Blue page has more information.
