Memo Text

The Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) recently conducted an analysis of the IT Security Policy and solicited feedback for revisions needed to the policy.  The IT Security Policy has been updated by ADE in collaboration with the Department of Information Systems, Bureau of Legislative Audit, and district technology coordinators across the state.  The policy revisions reflect national best practices for each of the seven standards: Security Management, Physical Security, Network Security, Access Control, Application Development & Maintenance, Incident Management, and Business Continuity.    The updated IT Security Policy is attached to this memo for reference and has been posted on the ADE Data Center by selecting the ‘Security Resources,” https://adedata.arkansas.gov/security/     For questions, please contact Holly Glover at holly.glover@arkansas.gov or 501-683-4230.
