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 University’s Software Engineering Institute 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 USPIS/CERT collaboration. It is an extension of CERT-RMM to include a new mail-specific process area for the transportation of international mail. The purpose is to ensure that all international mail is transported in accordance with the standards established by the Universal Postal Union (UPU), which is the governing body that regulates the transportation of international mail.
