This Interactive Qualifying Project report to the Information Technology Department of the Town of Nantucket, discusses the importance of developing an Information Security Program (ISP) for town departments. The report details the history of information security risks, actions taken in response, and a thorough analysis of information security procedures. Our group utilized electronic surveys and interviews to gather feedback regarding the opinions of town employees on the security of information within the town departments and what specifics must be included within the ISP. The final product for this project provides a framework for a comprehensive security policy, and our findings create a detailed guide that will aid with the finalization and implementation of the ISP.
