Audit Chides Department Of Homeland Security's WAN
The Department of Homeland Security's wide area network risks service disruptions and losing data because of a high volume of security problems, according to a recent audit. The Office of the Inspector General found that DHS had 65 million security event messages from February through April 2005, and 6.5 million were tagged as possible misuse of computers to access pornography Web sites.
The overall figure represents an increase of more then a 400 percent from the year before, but the number of porn warnings could be due to legitimate law enforcement investigations, DHS information officers told the OIG in an audit released at the end of 2005.
