ANAO Report on internet security in government agencies

The ANAO has published its audit report of internet security at six government agencies. For the six agencies audited, the
ANAO concluded that the current level of Internet security was insufficient, given the risks and problems identified through the audit findings.

The ANAO noted that a number of agencies could improve performance in some key areas, particularly email filtering, and all agencies audited could improve performance in one or more aspects of managing Internet security, such as the development of system security plans.

The ANAO made 5 key recommendations for the six agencies audited for the report,
including Customs, the Australian Federal Police, the Nuclear Safety Authority, Medicare, Department of Industry, Tourism and Resources and the Department of Workplace Relations.
