The IRS Audits Everything Except Their Own Security

Why is it that security problems keep coming up? Again and again, businesses as well as government agencies are having their systems breached and their data stolen. It’s truly an epidemic.

Now we have a report from the office of the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration saying that the IRS does not adequately review the “audit trail” logs that can help identify questionable activity on the IRS computers and networks.

The Inspector General also found that hackers could even “gain full control of the IRS network” which could “wreck havoc on the economy and financial markets.”

Wonderful. Will government ever get this right? Nah!
