Technology Audits

Audit efforts are focused on areas presenting the highest degree of risk, and where risk mitigation will provide the greatest potential benefit to the Executive Branch. The Audit Program also reviews internal controls within the WVOT operations, and will conduct audits of selected 3rd party providers at their off-site locations.

Technology Policies

The WVOT has created a general security policy, and other security-related policies and procedures, for the Executive Branch of West Virginia government. Agencies may establish more stringent policy supplements, but duplication of content should be avoided. Each agency developing a security policy supplement must submit it to the WVOT for review/approval.
