Security  Awareness Program

Westchester County's Department of Information Technology has implemented a number of policies, procedures and solutions to protect county users and all data stored on county devices that is considered "sensitive" or "personally identifiable" - also known as "Sensitive PII."

Data Loss Prevention (DLP) efforts are part of a larger security awareness program instituted by DoIT to protect county employees from identity theft and other threats as well as to safeguard the county's infrastructure. Under the leadership of the department's Architecture Committee, the county has also implemented consistent web application development standards and is committed to training developers on secure development practices, as described in this recent Government Technology Case Study.
