County of Sutter Website Security Policy


Purpose of Policy

This policy addresses the measures taken to safeguard the integrity of the County of Sutter's (County) network and computing infrastructure, including but not limited to monitoring, auditing, and encryption.

Policy Contents

The following sections of our Website Security Policy explain these uses:
  1. Security Measures
  2. Site Monitoring

A.  Security Measures

Security measures have been integrated into the design, implementation, and ongoing practices of the entire County operating environment as part of its continuing commitment to risk management.

For sensitive information such as that requested on the Child Abuse Form, users connect to the County website via a secure network protocol (SSL), and user information is transmitted through secure lines (encrypted data) to a departmental database. This database may retain, if provided, personal information that could potentially be used to identify individual users (e.g., e-mail address, phone number, etc.).

Any technical standards governing security are enforced by the County’s Information Technology Department. Under no circumstance should this policy be construed as warranting as fail-proof the absolute security of information provided and gathered through County supported websites.

Please refer to the County’s Privacy Policy for more information regarding the collection and safeguarding of information.
