GAO reviewed the Panama Canal Commission's (PCC) general controls over its computer information systems and identified ways to strengthen PCC computer security. GAO noted that: (1) there are nonmaterial weaknesses in PCC computer information systems that warrant management's attention; (2) PCC needs to improve its implementation of access control software to better utilize available capabilities in the areas of user passwords, terminal access, and data protection; (3) PCC needs to strengthen control over its management information systems (MIS) by ensuring the segregation of duties and centralizing responsibility for MIS security; and (4) PCC needs to develop formal MIS security policies and procedures, document the MIS controls environment and personnel position descriptions, and develop better computer security training programs.
