Watchdogs detail Federal security tribulations

 "For fiscal year 2014, Education and 21 other agencies had weaknesses in
electronic and physical controls to limit, prevent, or detect
inappropriate access to computer resources (data, equipment, and
facilities), thereby increasing their risk of unauthorized use,
modification, disclosure, and loss. Specifically, Education’s inspector
general reported weaknesses in several key access control elements,
including protecting the boundaries of its information systems and
handling incidents. For example, the department did not implement
controls to verify the security of non-government furnished equipment
connecting to its network via virtual private client programs prior to
authentication."


Security and privacy violations and threats continue to be the number one issue for Internet use and the proliferation of on-line services for governments, financial, and healthcare organizations worldwide.
