DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

The information technologies (IT) threat landscape is continually evolving and expanding. Specifically, there is an escalating occurrence of cyber security attacks targeting governmental agencies and departments.  This fact, in addition to growing State and Federal security compliance management and reporting requirements, has significantly increased the County IT department’s security office workload.  As a result, there exists an important need to expand the County’s capabilities for managing and mitigating cyber risks associated with information security threats.

 

The County’s IT Department requested that the Human Resources Department create the new classification of Information Security Analyst. The IT Department’s Fiscal Year 2021-22 Budget Request includes the addition of staff in the Information Security Analyst classification. There was not a current classification that fulfills the needs of IT, as it relates to providing professional level support in IT activities related to the coordination and implementation of County-wide cyber security compliance activities and operations.  As such, the Human Resources Department created, in consultation with the IT Department, a new classification of Information Security Analyst.

 

ALTERNATIVES

The Board could choose not to approve any of the recommendations herein and direct Human Resources to make revisions or conduct additional analysis.
