An audit by KPMG found security vulnerabilities in the IT systems at the Department of Labor (DOL), threatening the agency’s financial and support systems and increasing the risk that “current employees, separated employees, and/or contractors may obtain unauthorized or inappropriate access to financial systems and/or data.”

“Vulnerabilities that are not remedied in a timely manner may result in information leaks or system threats,” the audit said. “Collectively, the aforementioned IT control deficiencies pose a significant risk to the integrity of DOL’s  data, which could ultimately impact its ability to accurately and timely perform its financial reporting duties.”
