Network Security Controls (Follow-Up Report)

The Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) oversees programs for preventing and treating alcohol and substance abuse. OASAS has created a computer network that helps it perform its various duties. In audit 2006-S-98, we examined selected aspects of the security controls in place over this network and found that certain improvements were needed in these controls. When we followed up on these matters, we found that progress had been made by OASAS officials in implementing our audit recommendations, but additional actions were still needed. Due to the sensitivity of the information, our detailed audit findings and recommendations were not included in either our original audit report or our follow-up report.
