Policy Statement

TxDOT’s Investment Protection Policy is to safeguard the investment in its infrastructure through a robust and rigorous risk management program that allows business programs to optimize their technology-based processes. The intent of the policy is to have safe, reliable, and optimized infrastructure available to authorized users.


The Investment Protection Policy has three objectives designed to protect the considerable investment TxDOT has made in its information resources environment. They are:

  • assess and manage risks
  • protect those who work with information resources
  • safeguard software, hardware, system, and environment configurations

Each of these objectives is discussed in the following sections of this chapter. The explanations provide a brief introduction of each objective, list the minimum protocol TxDOT must follow, and assign the responsibility for the work.
