Network Security Policies
In the hopes of establishing and maintaining a secure data environment, KCTCS has put together a security plan that includes a set of best practice solutions and guidelines for reference purposes. The security plan helps to serve the need for compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) and FIPS requirements.
Standards & Guidelines
The Information Security Plan and best practices serve as the minimum information security practices for sensitive data computer resources and associated communication networks.
Acceptable Use Policy
KCTCS requires all individuals to responsibly use information and the information technology employed to collect, process, store, and disseminate it.
Current virus-checking programs help to ensure all web servers, local area network servers, mail servers, firewalls, and networked personal computers are properly secured and able to restrict and prevent unauthorized activity.
KCTCS limits the communication of data across remote connections with encrypted channels and protocols set up to serve remote access securely and effectively.
The Personal Information Security and Breach Investigation Procedures and Practices Act requires us to have policies and procedures to protect confidential and sensitive information.
