OCS mandates a plan for an IT security audit be in place by January 2018

The Office of Child Support (OCS) has implemented a new Independent Security Audit requirement, contained in Section 4.33(b) of the current (FY 2017) Cooperative Reimbursement Program Agreement.

The new requirement refers to more than just IT security, and includes analyzing all management, operational and technical controls over handling, storing and using confidential data.

At least once every three years, offices must obtain an Independent Security Audit to evaluate their compliance with the management, operational and technical controls. The audit must be conducted by an unbiased, independent entity or the IRS.

County-managed offices do not need to complete an Independent Security Audit until September 30, 2019, but there are several steps – including reporting to the OCS information about their compliance through the Tax Confidentiality Questionnaire – that must be taken by January 31, 2018.

Rehmann’s Technology Risk Management team can assist County Friend of the Court and prosecuting attorney offices in planning for and complying with these new requirements.
