As you may know, Texas Senate Bill 820 was signed into law in June of this year.
SB 820 requires each school district to (1) adopt a cybersecurity policy, (2) designate a cybersecurity coordinator and (3) report all incidents to the TEA and district families.
It also states that the district will determine the cybersecurity risk to the district and implement mitigation planning. Those plans need to adhere to the Texas Cybersecurity Framework, which was developed by DIR and aligns to federal standard NIST 800-53.
