Engagement Memo-Audit of Amtrak’s Strategy and Planning for Physical Security
We are initiating an audit of the company’s efforts to ensure the physical security of its passengers, employees, and critical infrastructure. Our objectives are to (1) assess the company’s strategy and planning for physical security and (2) identify challenges, if any, to achieving the company’s security goals. We may revise our scope or modify our objectives during the course of the audit.
During the audit, we plan to interview company officials, other rail carriers and security experts, and federal security officials, if applicable. We also plan to analyze company documents and data related to planning, implementing, and assessing physical security efforts. We will request these documents and data as our work progresses. We will work to minimize the impact of the audit by coordinating interviews and observations with staff in advance.
