Submission + - Govt. report slams FBI's internal network security

An anonymous reader writes: The Government Accountability Office, the federal government's watchdog agency, Thursday released a report critical of the FBI's internal network, asserting it lacks security controls adequate to thwart an insider attack. Among its other findings, the GAO said the FBI did not adequately "identify and authenticate users to prevent unauthorized access." The GAO report also criticized FBI network security in other regards, saying that there was a lack of encryption to protect sensitive data and patch management wasn't being done in a timely manner. http://www.networkworld.com/news/2007/052407-gao-s lams-fbi-network-security.html
