HCPSS MPIA Request #2019-017

Requested Information
I am requesting an opportunity to inspect or obtain copies of public records that identify specific IP addresses operated by the Howard County Public School System. What I am looking for is the external (public) IP addresses used by HCPSS using systems including, but not limited to, HCPSS's fiber optic network.

Response Notes

Under MPIA GP § 4-338, a custodian shall deny inspection of information about the security of an information system. As such, we are withholding the source IP addresses for systems operated by HCPSS.
