Department of State

Computer Network Security Controls (Follow-Up Review)

The Department of State licenses certain activities, administers building and commercial codes, and provides other regulatory and administrative services. In our prior audit report 2001-S-47, we audited the controls for preventing unauthorized access to the automated information systems supporting these activities and found that the controls were seriously inadequate. We recommended Department officials take immediate action to strengthen the controls. In our follow-up review, we found the Department was in the process of implementing all of our recommendations.
