IT Security ensures that an organization's material and software resources are used only for their intended purposes. At ITD, security is a part of everything we do.
Securing IT resources within ND state government requires collaboration among stakeholders. In accordance with the Incident Prevention/Response/Notification Standard, each customer of ITD shall designate an agency contact. That person, known as the agency's Security Officer, becomes part of a proactive group that communicates and corrects security incidents and vulnerabilities.
The primary communication channels used is the Security Officer's ListServ. For confidentiality reasons, membership to the list is managed by ITD. Customers may join the Security Officer's Listserv by sending an enrollment request along with their name, agency name, phone number, and email address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
ITD uses a challenge-question process to verify the identity of anyone requesting a password change. Individuals are required to complete an Online Password Information Form or provide the Service Desk with a Password Change Information Form (SFN52378) before ITD can reset their password.
