About Wilson County Security Policies
Security awareness is the key to eliminating exposures and is the best security tool used to address and reduce loss to Wilson County through the accidents, errors, and omissions of users. Wilson County is committed to protecting its employees, business partners, the County itself, and its citizens who use County services, from illegal or damaging actions by individuals, either knowingly or unknowingly.
To define the purpose and scope, assign responsibilities, and enforce the security goals of Wilson County, two policies have been developed.
- Technology Security Policy - for security of technology and information assets
- HIPAA Security Policy - to protect the privacy of personal electronic PHI (protected health information)
It is the purpose of the Wilson County Security Policies to detail the acceptable use of computer equipment, systems, and software within the Wilson County network. These rules are in place to protect the employee and Wilson County. Inappropriate use exposes Wilson County to risks including virus attacks, denial of service attacks, compromise of network systems and services, compromise of sensitive personal health information, and legal issues.
