DEAR COLLEAGUE LETTER

DCL-00-97

DATE: September 8, 2000

TO: All State IV-D Directors

RE: Security Course for Child Support Managers

Dear Colleague:

The Federal Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) continues to develop tools for States to use in raising awareness about the importance of security to the child support enforcement program. With the child support community under constant scrutiny regarding privacy issues, it is more important than ever that we remain vigilant regarding security of sensitive child support information.

OCSE is pleased to announce the availability of a new security tool, "The Child Support Enforcement Program-Securing the Future", a three hour security course designed specifically for child support managers. This course complements with the six-hour, instructor-led, interactive Training-the-Trainer (TOT) course that deals with the impact of the information age on child support. The Manager's course deals specifically with management's role in establishing security policies and procedures, self-assessment, hiring of child support personnel, physical security of child support offices, and protecting child support data from unauthorized disclosure.

To order a copy of the course materials, please contact OCSE's Reference Center at 202-401-9383. For more information on this course or any of OCSE's security initiatives, please contact the OCSE Division of Federal Systems. 

With everyone's help and awareness we can continue to serve the needs of children while protecting the public, our clients, and our child support workers. Thank you for your continued commitment as we work to improve the lives of our nation's children.

Sincerely,

David Gray Ross
Commissioner
Office of Child Support Enforcement
