Denver has an independently-elected Auditor to serve as a check and balance on Denver's "strong mayor" form of government. Timothy M. O'Brien, CPA, was elected to a four-year term as Denver's 24th Auditor in 2015. The Auditor's Office is responsible for internal audit services and prevailing wage enforcement.
Personally identifiable information – Social Security numbers, addresses, driver’s license numbers – are increasingly at risk of exposure as hackers break through cybersecurity gaps.

In this episode of Ask the Auditor, Denver Auditor Timothy O’Brien explains how his office found a security gap in the most unlikely place and why cybersecurity is his top priority.
