Government Accountability Office, Security Weaknesses at IRS' Cyberfile Data Center (GAO/AIMD-96-85R) (May 9, 1996) (full-text).

Overview Edit

Pursuant to a congressional request, the GAO reviewed numerous security weaknesses at the Internal Revenue Service's (IRS) Cyberfile Data Center.

The GAO noted that: (1) there were several operational security weaknesses at the data center that placed IRS telecommunications equipment at risk; (2) the lock to the data center was improperly installed, allowing unauthorized access to the center; (3) the center's telecommunications equipment was not being adequately protected from unauthorized personnel; (4) the center's emergency contingency plan failed to identify those individuals responsible for executing emergency disaster recovery procedures; and (5) the risk analysis conducted for Cyberfile was incomplete and failed to address the physical, operational, and communications security threats to the center.
