Reported in: iTnews

WA government agencies have been urged to bolster their information security and business continuity practices once again after more than 40 percent of agencies failed to meet minimum benchmarks.

In the state’s twelfth annual information systems audit, auditor-general Caroline Spencer said the two cyber security controls remained areas of concern for agencies, despite minor improvements over the last 12 months.

“Information security and business continuity showed little improvement, with many entities failing to meet the benchmark for minimum practice,” she said.

“This is of significant concern given the value of personal and corporate information entities hold.”
