The Government of Alberta uses a variety of information technology systems to provide programs and services, and host and process personal information.
We audited the security of the government and made 11 recommendations to the ministries of Executive Council, Service Alberta and Infrastructure in our October 2008 Report, in three areas of IT security:
- secure development, operation and use of web applications
- security of wireless access to systems
- physical security and environmental protection of data in data facilities
In our October 2010 Report, we found that Service Alberta had implemented two of our IT security recommendations and was working on the other nine.
