RE: IRS Safeguards and Publication 1075 Update

Dear Colleague:

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS), Office of Safeguards, recently updated the Publication 1075, Tax Information Security Guidelines for Federal, State and Local Agencies effective August 2010. The August 2010 IRS Publication 1075 supersedes the previous publication dated October 2007. The revised IRS Publication 1075 includes updated information regarding computer system security and physical and personnel security controls based on NIST Special Publication (SP) 800.53 as well as other changes throughout the document.

As a reminder, the new version of the IRS 1075 can be downloaded from IRS’ website at http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p1075.pdf (1.34 MB Adobe PDF).

In collaboration with OCSE, the Office of the Safeguards will provide teleconference briefings in the near future to discuss the updated Publication 1075 and address your questions. Once these conference call dates are established OCSE will send out notification to the agencies.

If you have questions or need additional information, please contact Scott Hale at (202) 401-5745 or scott.hale@acf.hhs.gov, or Danny Markley at (202) 260-1888 or danny.markley@acf.hhs.gov.
