On March 21, 2001, the OIG issued the Independent Public Accountant (IPA) report on the SBA’s financial statements-information systems control, under Audit Report 1-12, Audit of SBA’s Information Systems Control Fiscal Year 2000.  The IPA found that the SBA had made extensive progress toward implementing an agency-wide systems security program; however, improvements were still needed.  The report details areas where controls could be strengthened, such as (1) monitoring, assessing, and measuring security program effectiveness, (2) physical access to network servers, (3) documenting application development, (4) changes to operating system configurations, (5) segregation of duties, and (6)  disaster plan recovery testing.
