Information Systems Security Plans

A Security Plan is required, per UT Systems IT Policy IT0121, for computer systems at the UTHSC. This new policy became effective January 1, 2010; the initial security plans are to be done by January 1, 2011. Security Plans are to be prepared by the information custodian and systems custodian and submitted to IT Security at UTHSC who will consolidate them.

UTHSC is preparing its initial set of Information Systems Security Plans to comply with the UT System IT Policy IT0121. To compile the security plans by the due date, custodians should submit their plans, in the form of two spreadsheet templates, to IT Security by December 17, 2010. These templates are confidential documents and should be treated as such.

Detailed instructions on preparing a Security Plan are found in the Steps to a Successful Security Plan Password Protected Area. The two templates are
