This testimony discusses information security controls over computer systems at the Department of Commerce. Dramatic increases in computer interconnectivity, especially in the use of the Internet, are revolutionizing the way the government, the nation, and much of the world communicate and conduct business. However, this widespread interconnectivity also poses significant risks to the nation's computer systems and to the critical operations and infrastructures they support. This testimony provides information on the effectiveness of Commerce's (1) logical access controls and other information system controls over its computerized data, (2) incident detection and response capabilities, and (3) information security management program and related procedures.
