FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- State Auditor Adam Edelen is recommending improvements to cybersecurity at the Kentucky Retirement Systems.

Edelen released findings from an annual review on Wednesday and made several recommendations for fiscal improvements, including more closely monitoring contracts with outside companies.

But one of the more eye-catching recommendations involved weaknesses in cybersecurity.

In particular, Edelen said his staff discovered that former Kentucky Retirement Systems employees still had access to software systems containing sensitive and confidential information.

The review also found accounting weaknesses and inadequate segregation of duties among key financial staffers.
