Authorizing state audits of data storage and management practices

This week, the House General Government & Information Technology Committee heard HB 1008, authorizing the State Auditor to conduct audits of a state or local government’s data management and storage practices and requiring state agencies and local governments to report computer breaches to the Auditor. AWC and other local government groups testified with a variety of concerns, including the very broad authority granted under the bill, the extensive audits already conducted, and the duplication of existing safeguards.
