What is the purpose of the California Compliance and Security Incident Reporting System (Cal-CSIRS) Incident Report?

The Cal-CSIRS report provides documentation and accountability in response to incidents. It helps the state entity identify and correct problems and control deficiencies within the state entity, and ensures that the head of the state entity is aware of the incident and its cause, so that he/she can direct the state entity’s response and corrective action plan to prevent similar occurrences in the future. It also helps the Office of Information Security monitor and mitigate statewide problems or trends.
