KS Audit: IT Security Traded for Worker Convenience

Statehouse 2 small(Photo by Stephen Koranda)An audit has found some state agencies lacking when it comes to IT security or... Information Technology security. The audit released Tuesday indicated problems like weak passwords and insufficient security training.  Justin Stowe is with the Kansas Legislative Division of Post Audit. He told a group of lawmakers that some agencies haven’t adopted tough security measures such as complex passwords because of convenience.

Auditors say the security updates are needed to help protect sensitive personal and financial information that’s held by the state. Many of the specific problems identified were discussed in a closed-door meeting, to avoid publicizing security weaknesses at specific state agencies. The audit's authors say state agencies have agreed to implement most of the recommendations.
