Comments are provided on a report which examined the automated systems security programs of the Department of Defense (DOD) and other major federal agencies, particularly as they relate to protecting sensitive data concerning internal audits and audit findings.

The report concluded that agency management attention to programs for protecting data in automated systems was deficient. However, potential was found for improvement, and the Office of Management and Budget and the Department of Army have issued regulations that provide a framework of policies and procedures which address the problems discussed in the report. If agencies continue these efforts to a significant degree, the report's recommendation on the audit of systems security could be satisfied.
