Information Security Management
Information Security describes the policies, processes, and controls to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data. In 2010, Mayor Karl Dean signed an Executive Order which states, in part, that there is
“ . . . a need to establish the Metropolitan Government’s Information Security Management Policy (ISM Policy) to address the protection of information and information systems from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, disruption, modification, or destruction now and in the future as changes occur . . .”
This Executive Order was reaffirmed by Mayor David Briley with the signing of Executive Order 001.
The Director of ITS (Metro’s Chief Information Officer) is responsible for ensuring that these information security policies are developed, implemented, and modified as necessary. Metro’s Chief Information Security Officer is tasked with doing so. This is part of an overall strategy of implementing and maintaining a strategic Information Security Management program.
