    California Department of Technology (CDT) Office of Information Security has reported a startling improvement in departments’ compliance with its Required Security Reporting Activities.

    Out of 101 departments required to file, a whopping 97 had submitted all required filings. Only a single department was determined to be “At Risk”, missing two required filings, the Alcoholic Beverage Control Appeals Board.

    This is especially encouraging news given the State Auditor’s report two years ago that said State of California data and other information assets are potentially vulnerable to attack or disruption. Almost 95% of departments which underwent the Auditor’s scrutiny were not in full compliance with State’s information security standards, and dozens would not be until 2018 or even 2020.

    While these measurements may be apples to oranges until we learn more; nonetheless, it appears that CDT CIO Amy Tong and CISO Peter Liebert have made significant progress over the last year.
