Best Practices for Protecting Confidential, Sensitive, and Personal Information: All service providers should review the Community Operations Division Program Advisory from the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) regarding best practices for protecting confidential, sensitive, and personal information, regardless of format (i.e.- electronic or paper).

Additionally, we are posting several helpful documents that were presented by the DDS Security Officers to our communities: Information Security and Privacy- WHAT are the Guidelines? HOW is it to be done? WHY is it to be done? To open the Security Training presentation, please click here.
