The Securities and Exchange Commission’s Office of Inspector General issued an audit report that claimed that over 200 laptop computers in locations it reviewed in test work may be missing, and as a result, “the SEC is at risk for the unauthorized release of sensitive, nonpublic information.” In addition, the Inspector General found numerous examples of incorrect internal location and user information related to laptops, and that the SEC’s procedures for “sharing information about lost or stolen laptops were inadequate.” According to the audit report, “[t]hese weaknesses existed because personnel did not always understand their roles and responsibilities, and related policies and procedures were inadequate, had not been effectively communicated, and were not consistently followed.” The SEC committed to implement various controls recommended by the Inspector General to improve its oversight of laptops.
