According to a recent audit report by the Western Australian Auditor General, Colin Murphy, seven different government agencies are not adequately protecting sensitive information from attack.

In Murphy’s report, he looked at seven different agencies to inspect how they manage their security: Legal Aid, Curtin University, Murdoch University, Department of Health, Department of Local Government and Communities, Department of Drugs & Alcohol, and the Department of the Attorney General.

During his investigation, Murphy focused on seven key areas: system hardening, attack surface, account security, patching, data protection, auditing and monitoring, and backdoors and misconfiguration. He found an alarming 115 weaknesses in these key areas, with attack surface, account security, system hardening and patching posing the greatest threat to the agencies overall security postures.            

The report also found that not one of the thirteen systems examined were encrypting sensitive data stored in their databases.

These alarming findings have raised concerns over the government’s underestimation of the seriousness of IT security and how those systems put critical information at risk of being compromised.
