Abstract:

Developing and implementing measurable methodologies for improving the security and resilience of a national postal sector directly contribute to protecting public and postal personnel, assets, and revenues. Such methodologies also contribute to the security and resilience of the mode of transport used to carry mail and the protection of the global mail supply chain. Since 2011, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service USPIS has collaborated with the CERT Division at Carnegie Mellon Universitys Software Engineering Institute SEI to improve the resilience of selected U.S. Postal Service USPS products and services. The CERT Resilience Management Model CERT-RMM and its companion diagnostic methods served as the foundational tool for this collaboration. This report includes one result of the USPISCERT collaboration. It is an extension of CERT-RMM to include a new mail-specific process area for the induction acceptance of mail into the U.S. domestic mail stream. The purpose is to ensure that mail is collected and accepted in accordance with USPS standards and requirements for the resilience of mail during the induction process.
