University at Albany: Network Security Controls (Follow-Up Report)

The University at Albany offers undergraduate and graduate education in a broad range of academic fields. In audit report 2004-S-23, we examined the adequacy of the University’s controls for preventing unauthorized access to its academic and administrative computer network, and found that certain improvements could be made in these controls. When we followed up on these matters with University officials, we found that they had taken significant actions to implement our audit recommendations, but some additional actions were still needed. To protect the security of the network’s operations, our detailed audit findings were not included in either our original audit report or our follow-up report.
