SITSD/ISSO = Working with you to make your site safe!

          Ron Baldwin

"With the threat of cyber attacks growing every day, understanding how each of us can work to protect the State of Montana information assets is a fundamental requirement of everyone who uses a computer. The SITSD Information Systems Security Office has established this website to provide cyber security information for state agencies and staff, Montana businesses, and Montana residents and communities.

The site changes regularly and I encourage you to use it as a reference for staying safe online. SITSD has also teamed up with SANS to provide Securing the Human -  a cyber security training program designed to increase awareness of the need to maintain confidentiality, how to secure data and devices properly, and how to prevent malware infections. The lessons learned in this training also will help you to keep your personal devices safe."
