An information security incident is any event which has the potential to be breach of the City's information security safeguards.
Circumstances to Report an Incident
Any time that you believe data may be jeopardized, you should report the incident or threat to Information Services. Often, security incidents are deemed 'benign' or harmless. However, it is important to report anything unusual. Examples may include:
lost or stolen thumb drives, laptops, cell phones, or media
Non City employee discovered using a city computer
Potential that any person's password has been compromised
Potential misuse of or tampering with data
Suspected unauthorized software or data copying
Any other suspicious activity or suspected data threat
How Do I Report an Incident?
Because the need to address a security incident can be immediate, please contact Information Services immediately via phone at extension 6170.
