Maricopa County is committed to regional leadership and fiscally responsible in providing the necessary public services so that residents can enjoy living in a healthy and safe community. Keeping the County healthy and safe includes ensuring that our citizens and employees are aware of digital threats and understand the resources available to them to mitigate these risks. This Cyber Security Portal represents Maricopa County's commitment to serving its citizens. The County also recognizes that Cyber Security threats may impact other states, counties, local governments and partners as well, potentially having an impact on our citizens. Therefore, we have established a collection of information and resources that can be used to support their Cyber Security posture in addition to providing resources to employees and citizens.

Meet the County's Chief Information Security Officer (CISO). The CISO, under the direction and leadership of the Maricopa County CIO, is responsible for enterprise cyber security, as well as identifying, developing, implementing and maintaining policies, standards, processes and procedures which are designed to mitigate the risks of Cyber threats to our business environment. This responsibility is carried out through execution of Security Operations, Risk Management and Security Architecture programs.
