The Department has implemented our October 2008 recommendation to obtain assurance that information technology controls have been implemented at its international offices. The Department formalized an IT risk and control framework for the international offices, implemented a secured data transmission system to protect information that is shared between the offices and the Alberta Government, and obtained assurance from the federal Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT) that IT security policies and control procedures are in place at the colocated offices—see below.

For outstanding previous recommendations to the organizations that form the Ministry, please see our outstanding recommendations list on page 159.
