Network Security Controls

The Office of General Services (OGS) provides various support services to State agencies, public authorities, municipalities and other political subdivisions of New York State. In carrying out these responsibilities, OGS makes considerable use of its Internet web site and other interconnected electronic data processing systems. OGS uses a computer network to facilitate its electronic data processing activities. We audited selected aspects of the security controls in place over this network, and identified certain areas in which the controls needed to be improved. Our findings and recommendations were provided to OGS officials during the course of our audit, but were not included in our public report due to the sensitivity of the information.
