Security awareness tips offer information about relevant work and home related security issues.
PMACS security policies address the intent of the PSOM Electronic Data Protection policy.
It is important to keep an accurate inventory of applications, databases, and processes that use sensitive information. Identified systems should be assessed to determine security related vulnerabilities and identify safeguards that will need to be implemented to reduce risk to an acceptable level. The Security and Privacy Impact Assessment (SPIA) process will help to ensure that information is protected and used only for its intended purpose. Information Security will work with you to complete these assessments. Contact Dave Wargo, email@example.com for more information.
Critical systems, i.e. a server that stores sensitive information, should be scanned for vulnerabilities on a regular basis. Please register systems containing sensitive information in the critical host database. Registered systems will be scanned regularly by ISC Security.
