Jamaica’s Auditor General cites security weaknesses in gov’t software

Auditor General Pamela Monroe Ellis flagged security vulnerabilities in an IT software system used by government agencies that handle building and development applications. The AMANDA software was implemented to provide a national system for the management of development applications by municipal corporations, the National Environment and Planning Agency, and other agencies. The system was expected to enhance efficiency through the control and monitoring of workflows, automation of repetitive tasks, and information sharing among the entities. Monroe Ellis argued that failure to implement adequate cybersecurity measures may result in operational disruption.
