Media Release from Cook County - March 19, 2019

Following are highlights and key priorities covered at the Tuesday, March 19 Committee of the Whole Meeting:



Rena Rogers, MIS Director, brought the following items to the Board for discussion:

  • MIS presented the Mobile Device Policy to the Board for review. The policy was reviewed and discussed with minor changes to the wording suggested. Proposed changes to the policy include a roll out of mobile device protection for all County mobile devices and personal devices used for County business. MIS is currently utilizing the MAAS 360 app on twenty-five mobile devices. This app is an added measure of security and allows MIS to wipe out the app and phone if it has been compromised.  MIS currently has $3,000 budgeted for twenty-five licenses and it is anticipated that the cost to increase to fifty licenses would be an additional $3,000 for a total budget of $6,000. The Board discussed the possible implications of the proposed changes. MIS will make the minor wording changes as discussed and will bring to the Board with a plan of implementation for the Board to review and vote on during a Regular Board of Commissions Meeting. 


Jeff Cadwell, County Administrator, brought the following items to the Board for review:

  • Minutes from the January 15 and February 19 Personnel Committee and the February 27 Public Safety and Transportation Committee were included as correspondence.

Full details of Board Meetings are available through video footage, Agendas and Minutes at All County Board and Committee of the Whole Meetings are open to the public.
