Operation Barron identified a number of corruption vulnerabilities that enabled the employee to conceal their conduct at VicRoads. IBAC identified opportunities for VicRoads to strengthen its information security practices and auditing processes to address the corruption vulnerabilities identified in this investigation. These included:
- review systems, policies and procedures in relation to auditing user access to registration and licensing systems, responsible use of VicRoads' information (including recording reasons for accessing and altering reasons), and the role of managers and supervisors in supervising employees’ access to databases.
- provide training and education to ensure all employees understand the requirements regarding the appropriate use, access and alteration of information across VicRoads platforms, and that supervisors and managers are trained regarding their obligations.
In January 2019, VicRoads provided a response to IBAC, outlining the key actions it had taken to address the corruption vulnerabilities identified in Operation Barron.
