In the expanding world of cyber-information, Alberta needs to pull up its socks or risk having confidential data exposed, the provincial auditor general reported Wednesday.

Fred Dunn said government wide safeguards and benchmarks are needed to keep the system safe and cost effective. “The government departments as a whole need to do a better job identifying the risks,” said Dunn in his semi-annual report.

He said information technology programs are a patchwork quilt, varying from department to department. (news alert)
