Auditor finds security breaches with Texas Workforce Commission
TWC told auditors that changes would be made after the state’s auditor’s office discovered four areas at risk.
AUSTIN, Texas – The state auditor’s office told the Texas Workforce Board to modify some of its security methods.
In a state report, the auditors do not give details of the security vulnerabilities.
“To minimize security risks, the auditors communicated the details of the audit findings separately to the committee in writing,” the report said.
The auditors said two findings show the risks of “critically affecting the ability of the Commission to effectively administer its information security function”.
“Immediate action must be taken to reduce the risk,” the auditors said.
The other two findings show that the risks “moderately affect the information security function of the Commission”.
TWC told listeners changes would be made.
“We cooperated with the SAO during the audit and are grateful that they brought these issues to our attention,” a TWC spokesperson told KVUE News. “The Commission agrees with the findings and has already declared to implement corrective measures.”
