Security Design Review

Home » Services » Security Design Review

The state Office of Cyber Security (OCS) Security Design Review process provides agencies with a security assessment of their new or updated systems, and works with agencies to ensure security controls and processes are in compliance with the state’s IT security standards. This supports agency business objectives by helping ensure services are securely configured prior to being deployed.

Security Design Reviews are required when an agency project or initiative requires OCIO oversight; when an agency project or initiative creates risk to state assets outside the agency; or when required by an agency’s IT security program (OCIO IT Security Standard 141.10, Section 1.2.1).


  • Provided as part of the security allocation.
  • These reviews are tailored to the project’s risk profile.
  • OCS works with agency business and IT security staff and, if necessary,  vendor representatives.
  • Results are strictly confidential.


The Security Design Review process is included in agencies’ security allocation
