UW System Audit Shows Potential Cyber-Security Risks

A state audit finds the UW System could be an easy target for cyber attacks or hacks if changes are not made to IT security systems. Auditors found potential risks to accounting, payroll, and student data. The UW System has until the end of August to submit plans to the Joint Legislative Audit Committee on ways to improve security. At that point, they must tell lawmakers what steps have already been taken and improvements yet to come. The UW System already has a corrective action plan with a long to-do list.
