The Office of the State Comptroller, Division of Local Government and School Accountability has released its latest edition of its Local Government Management Guide on Information Technology Governance.

The Guide is intended to make the oversight of information technology less daunting by providing a template for understanding and strengthening controls over IT. It includes a Security Self–Assessment structured around twelve key areas of IT security that is intended to help local governments exercise effective oversight of IT operations and serve as a starting point for discussions with personnel who are responsible for the day–to–day management of the entity’s computer operations. 

Readers are invited to e-mail the Division -- localgov@osc.state.ny.us --with questions concerning IT governance or for assistance interpreting the self–assessment results.

The Guide is posted on the Internet at:
