ESPAC has approved the following 3-Year Strategy
ESPAC is charged with identifying and reducing risk at the Enterprise Level to ensure data security. In order to do this, we must seek cost effective solutions and consider vendor consolidations where practical.
Increase Statewide Accountability
ESPAC is funded by a pro-rata assessment on every employee. As stewards of tax-payer dollars, it is critical that we provide good customer service and hold both staff and vendors accountable for the data we are charged to protect.
Enhanced Public Safety
ESPAC and its leaders are working to build stronger partnerships with law enforcement and prosecutors to ensure that criminal hackers are held accountable.
In the ever evolving cyber environment, ESPAC must be able and agile. We must seek continuous improvement to be ready for new and emerging threats.
ESPAC will build new and existing relationships with all levels of Government, Educational, Tribal, and Private sector. We see ourselves as a resource of information sharing and outreach.
