Return engagement. Some readers had trouble watching the “Engage” episode that was released this week.

The technical problems have been fixed. You can watch the episode on the Link site, where the video was posted Oct. 16.

Handbook update. USPS has updated the AS-805 Information Security Handbook to better protect against unauthorized use, modification, disclosure or destruction of information resources.

The handbook updates requirements for:

    • Encrypting USB flash drives
    • Connecting personal and postal-issued devices to USPS systems
    • Clearance and background checks for designated personnel

Responsibilities have also been revised for functional system coordinators, the USPS employees authorized to grant user access to information systems.
