  • Windows XP Exception Process

An exception to the UMS policy on Microsoft Windows XP may be requested from the Office of Information Security. If approved the exception shall be maintained on file by the requester and actions taken to address the exception will be recorded with the exception.

An exception to a published Policy or Standard may be granted in any of the following situations:

  • A Temporary situation
  • A different solution is available with equivalent or superior protection
  • Lack of resources

The Security Exception Request shall be submitted to the CISO and must include:

  • System affected and classification
  • Description of the non-compliance
  • Duration of the exception and review dates
  • Assessment of risk and plan for alternate risk management

The CISO will review the exception with the requester and determine whether the exception shall be granted, the duration of the exception, and what reviews are required at what dates.

An approved exception shall be maintained on file by the requester and actions taken to address the exception will be recorded with the exception.

The Office of Information Security has provided a form for requesting exceptions to this policy. You will be required to log in using your MaineStreet credentials.
