The California Office of Information Security has responsibility and authority over statewide information security and privacy policies, and standards applicable to all state government agencies, as outlined in Government Code Section 11549, Chapter 183, of the Statutes of 2007 (Senate Bill 90). On May 10, 2009, we became part of the Office of the State Chief Information Officer (OCIO). Then, on September 28, 2010, the OCIO was renamed the California Technology Agency in accordance with Chapter 404, Statutes of 2010 (AB 2408).
