State Liquor Authority

Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control: Network Security Controls

In New York State, the sale and distribution of alcoholic beverages is regulated by the State Liquor Authority, a three-member Board of Commissioners that is supported by the Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control. The Division has a computer network that helps it perform its duties. We examined selected aspects of the security controls in place over this network. We found that certain improvements were needed in these controls. So as not to compromise the security of the network, our detailed findings and recommendations were not included in our report, but were presented separately to Division officials throughout the course of our audit.
