An Enterprise System does not include any of the following:

  • Information Technology security systems, including firewalls and other cybersecurity systems.
  • Physical access control systems, employee identification management systems, video monitoring and other physical control systems.
  • Infrastructure and mechanical control systems, including those that control or manage street lights, electrical, natural gas or water or sewer functions.

  • Systems that would be restricted from disclosure by Section 6254.19.
  • The specific records that the information technology system collects, stores, exchanges or analyzes.

Requirements:

  • Current system vendor;
  • Current system product;
  • System’s purpose;
  • A description of categories or types of data;
  • The department that is the prime custodian of the data;
  • The frequency that system data is collected;

  2. To post the catalog in a prominent location on the agency’s website.
