DOT IG flags cybersecurity improvements

The Transportation Department needs to do a better job assessing systems for security weaknesses, according to a new report from the DOT inspector general.

Although DOT has made progress, issues remain in assuring that the department is finding and fixing problems, said Alexis Stefani, principal assistant inspector general for auditing and evaluation.

The audit team found inadequate assessments of systems risks, a lack of evidence that tests were performed, incomplete presentation of remaining weaknesses and little follow-up to assure that problems were being fixed.
