Dear Ms. Best:

I'm writing for clarification of your FOIA request below.

As written, you are seeking every document over a 20-year period that "mentions or describes audits, reviews, investigations or reports regarding the agency's cyber security, including audits or investigations regarding the state of the agency's cyber security regarding potential attacks as well as audits and investigations conducted in the wake of a suspected or actual cyber attack, hacking incident or breach." The request does not specifically ask for a copy of any such audit, review, investigation, or report.

Is what you are seeking actually:

A copy of every audit, review, investigation, or report from January 1, 1996 to June 30, 2016, related to:

1. The agency's cybersecurity;
2. The state of the agency's cyber security regarding potential attacks; and
3. A suspected or actual cyber attack, hacking incident or breach.
For any such audit, review, investigation, or report that is no longer available, documents identifying or describing such an audit, review, investigation, or report.

Please let me know if this correctly clarifies your request. Until we hear from you, we will be unable to process your request.

Thank you,

Howard D. Sorensen
