You can view the Data Security Management Council 2019 Annual Report here. The Council is comprised of IT professionals from many different government entities within the state. The Council meets regularly to review existing state government data security policies, assess ongoing risks to state government information technology, create a method to notify state and local government entities of new risks, coordinate data breach simulation exercises with state and local government entities, and develop data security best practice recommendations for state government. 

In 2019, the council studied several topics in detail, such as election security, tools for monitoring, federal partnerships, incident response, and intelligence sharing. The council reviewed Security Assessment processes and recommendations. In addition, the Council joined the Cyber Center, which provides all government entities the necessary resources to identify risks, remediate incidents, and communicate effectively. The Cyber Center provides a single point of contact for assistance with cyber security.
