The Technology and Innovation (T&I) Department’s Information Security Office (TISO) was established for the purpose of protecting the City of Tampa (COT)’s information and technology assets, including hardware, software, and data. The key component of COT’s effort to protect information assets is the Enterprise Information Security Charter Policy. It was initiated by TISO and COT’s executive management to be the foundation of security policies, standards, and procedures. The overall objective of the charter policy is to reduce business and operational risk by maintaining the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data in networks and other system components.

Headed by the Information Security Officer, TISO has a complement of five members on its staff. The scope of their activities extends beyond protecting information related only to COT employees. TISO is also responsible for protecting COT data processed or accessed by outside contractors, vendors, and individuals who connect to COT networks or otherwise come into contact with COT information assets.
