Information Technology Policies and Standards
|Physical Security Equipment and Software Standard|
|IT Procurement Policy|
To Be Reviewed
|This physical security standard is the foundation for conformity within facility and network managed systems. The system provides security staff with services, using highest quality industry technologies, access to a centralized system that will monitor and maintain the integrity of facility and personnel security using electronic physical security systems.|
These standards enable the City to:
- facilitate the exchange and sharing of video and security data electronically, by using the same programs (with related file formats) and platforms across the Metropolitan Area;
- achieve substantial savings in person-time support costs, over a period of time, by increasing the support capabilities of disparate systems while reducing the number of products supported;
- reduce training costs by having the same systems in use throughout City government;
- enhance support services by maintaining coordinated, compatible, and integrated solutions.
|Supported Hardware and Software (includes installation, configuration, and problem-solving):
|Departments recognize, specify, and justify the need for purchasing new security systems. Standards change as new technologies emerge providing enhanced controls, communication, and integration capabilities. These standards will:
- facilitate the management and administration of security information electronically, by using the same programs (with related hardware) and platforms across City government;
- achieve substantial savings in person/time support costs, over a period of time, by reducing the number of products supported;
- reduce training costs and facilitate enhanced support services on the path towards master-planning, by having the same systems in use throughout City government.
