Security Summit

In a related effort, VanOrden says the State Division of Risk Management will be hosting a daylong security summit for state agencies, counties and cities. The summit will focus on education and judicial issues; however, the DTS has been invited to participate to remind participants about security issues and what should be done to secure private data.

Furthermore, Hastings is participating with other CISOs in an IT leadership network called AIM, which is developing a document of best security practices. While the best practices won’t necessarily be for public consumption, Hastings’ participation will certainly benefit the state, according to VanOrden.

Hastings came to his position as the state CISO after working in security for Deloitte & Touche in Texas. Many of the best practices VanOrden and Hastings have implemented at the state would also be beneficial for Utah businesses that are concerned about information security.
