In accordance with Utah Code 63F-1-104(4), the Department of Technology Services (DTS) is required to conduct an information security assessment of state data systems every two years. The required 2019 information security assessment will be completed by DTS security and internal audit personnel. The DTS team will coordinate with your agency information security personnel to complete the assessment by October 1. We anticipate it will take a total of four hours to complete the assessment. We will be following the Department of Homeland Security’s
DTS Vision Statement
We will enable our partner agencies to securely leverage technology to better serve the residents of the State of Utah.
DTS has established four pillars that represent the main areas of focus for the department in order to support our partner agencies with world class technology and excellent customer service.
MDM - Mobile Device Management
Mobile Device Management (MDM) is software that helps secure and manage mobile devices used to access State Data. The Enterprise Mobile Device Policy defines and describes the acceptable use of mobile devices for all State of Utah executive branch employees.

The Department of Technology Services has implemented Enterprise Policies for all Executive Branch State employees served by DTS. These Enterprise Policies help protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the State’s information and information systems. We appreciate your cooperation and collaboration in effectively keeping State data secure.

The State IT Strategic Plan has defined the criteria for Enterprise Architecture to “provide a roadmap for moving the State of Utah IT infrastructure (i.e., processes, information and data, applications, and technology) from the current state to the future state.”
