The DHS Intelligence Unit was scalded by an Inspector General report for lack business continuity and disaster recovery planning. Black Chambers CEO Alexander Urbelis was quoted by SC Magazine in an article addressing these failures, plans for improving business continuity preparedness, and the reasons for the major backlog of DHS Freedom of Information Act requests.

The SC Magazine article is entitled, 'Report: DHS Intelligence Unit Lacks ‘Adequate Oversight for Continuity Capabilities’ and was based on DHS Office of the Inspector General report of 16 May 2016, entitled 'Office of Intelligence and Analysis Can Improve Transparency and Privacy.'
