The city of Watertown is not doing enough to protect its financial information and employee's information.
That's according to New York Comptroller's office, which reviewed the city's cyber securities during an audit between July 2015 and April of this year. The review determined former employees could still access computer systems, and that the city does not have adequate protections in place should a network system crash. Mayor Joe Butler Jr. told the Watertown Daily Times that officials are working to "take corrective action."
Watertown has three months to prepare a plan and then respond to the Comptroller's findings.
