The Inspector General of the Securities and Exchange Commission issued a report on October 5 saying that ensuring an effective cybersecurity program remained one of the Commission’s management and performance challenges for the just-started 2018 fiscal year. The report noted that the Office of Inspector General is still reviewing actions taken by the SEC to close out 18 information security recommendations made by OIG as part of a 2016 audit, and that the SEC had submitted to the General Accounting Office evidence of corrective actions taken in response to recent information security recommendations by GAO.
