Meeting Notice

Meeting Agenda:

  • Review Waiver from Game & Fish for Physical Access standard
  • Encryption of Outbound Email with SSN
  • Early review of survey results for Remote Support tool


ITD is continuing to transition their password management solution to an enterprise solution offering, and will communicate via the service desk when the solution is available. ITD is also researching a self-service Account Unlock tool and many of the implications of offering such a tool. Other news is that the team intends to arrange a call with Gartner at next month’s EA Security Architecture meeting to discuss Antivirus solutions and industry trends.

GNF submitted a waiver request for Physical Access regarding certain criteria about physical access to mobile devices. The team recommended approval of the waiver with certain stipulations, and the recommendation will be presented as a survey to all EA participants to gather feedback for the CIO’s decision.

Discussion about encryption of outbound Email was continued from last month’s meeting, when the process/tool was updated. There continues to be questions about exactly how encryption works with email and the team is working on clarifying.

The team took a look at early results from the Remote Support survey. One question that should have been included was a question on Ease of Use, which could be important for non-support users using an enterprise solution. We’ll need to follow up with agencies to clarify the results.

Future topics and items the participants are planning to follow up on include some testing results for LAPS and a review of our Mobile Device Management solution to see if the latest version includes features we may want to take advantage of.
