B.C. Auditor General John Doyle found serious security flaws in B.C.’s computerized criminal justice system, according to a report released today.
Combined with an audit of similar problems in the corrections branch in 2008, the findings cause him to question the quality of information technology leadership and governance around criminal justice information, he said.
The audit was of an integrated case-management system known as JUSTIN, which contains more than one million police investigations and includes the most sensitive information held by government.
It found a serious lack of controls over inappropriate access and “virtually no controls for detecting or preventing unauthorized disclosure.”
Justice Minister Shirley Bond said today that significant risks in the system have already been addressed as a result of the audit.
