9-4 Information Technology Professionals Policy -Section I: Introduction

Information Systems Department

I. Introduction

Information is an asset, which, like other important business assets, has value to an organization and consequently needs to be suitably protected. The County of Sonoma has an obligation to the public and is mandated by laws and standards (see Appendix A) to protect information maintained on Local Agency IT resources from unauthorized use, disclosure, modification, loss or denial.

This Policy manual has been developed to be in alignment with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 27002 Code of Practice for Information Security Management framework and to meet County compliance obligations. This manual, together with the Administrative Policy 9-2: Departmental Computer Use, establishes the foundation for information technology security in the County to assure appropriate and authorized access, usage and integrity of information. Compliance with this Policy manual is mandatory.
