It s shocking what is the tone

It’s Shocking!What is the Tone?

Certainly, auditors can find shocking shortcomings. Ross Wescott, now chief auditor for the Oregon utility Portland General Electric Co., has discovered a few unsavory surprises for CIOs, including a massive security hole when he was at another company. In that case, the IT department "didn't bother turning on the security at the core level," says Wescott, who helps develop the auditor certification test at the Information Systems Audit and Control Association. "They were rolling this out to core applications. The apps people thought the core people were setting security, so they didn't do it. There was no security anywhere." Fortunately, Wescott discovered the problem before anyone took advantage.
