The Office of Information Security (OIS) is the single state source for cyber security readiness and awareness.
The mission of the Office of Information Security (OIS) is to provide leadership in the development, delivery and maintenance of an information security program by safeguarding the state's information assets against unauthorized use, disclosure, modification, damage or loss to support Colorado’s mission to provide secure and sustainable services.
OIS is directly aligned with the goals and objectives of the National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace. Working closely with federal, state, local and private sector partners, the Office of Information Security actively gathers and analyzes information on cyber threats and vulnerabilities that present risk to the state's information systems or the critical information managed within.
The Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) is responsible for enterprise-wide Colorado Information Security Program (CISP) which includes governance, risk, compliance and risk management.
