Don’t Assume Your Data is Safe… Ensure it with Strong Cybersecurity

Although today’s hyperconnected world offers numerous benefits, it also brings with it the specter of cybercrime. More connected devices mean more entry points into a network and a broader attack surface. With the proliferation of malware, such as cryptojacking, phishing and DDoS attacks, it’s estimated that more than 100,000 malicious cyberassaults take place each and every day. The only way to protect yourself against this growing menace is to institute a powerful cybersecurity suite of programs and infrastructure.

TEXAS SB820: What You Need to Know

Passed by the Texas State Legislature and in effect as of September 1, 2019, SB820 requires that Texas school districts adopt a cybersecurity policy. It is an amendment to the Texas Education Code that adds Section 11.175 to Subchapter d, Chapter 11. This amendment defines the terms, “Breach of system security,” “Cyber attack,” and “Cybersecurity.”

Very simply – every school must:

  • Define a cybersecurity policy to protect infrastructure against malicious attack.       
  • Define each district’s individual risk of cyber-attack.       
  • Create a strategy to lessen or eliminate that risk       

The Superintendent of each district must designate a person to be the cybersecurity coordinator, who will:

  • Act as a point-of-contact between the district and the TEA in the event of a cybersecurity incident, report directly to the TEA in the event of such an attack, and report to the parents or guardians of children whose information is compromised.

It is unclear who will pay for the requirements mandated in the bill. It is just as unclear what the penalty for non-compliance will be.

You should prepare immediately by reaching out to your Netsync Account Manager to provide:

  • SB820 readiness assessment
  • Continuous cybersecurity awareness training
  • Infrastructure security design workshop
  • Incident response and remediation retainer
  • 24×7 security operation center (SOC)
