Senate Bill (SB) 64 and House Bill (HB) 3834

During the 86th regular (86R) legislative session,  Senate Bill (SB) 64 and House Bill (HB) 3834 were signed into law.

Under SB 64, public community colleges became subject to the security provisions ofChapter 2054 of Texas Government Code and Chapter 202 of the Texas Administrative Code, which govern the information security standards for state agencies and institutions of higher education in the State of Texas. In the State of Texas, the state agency granted rule-making authority to establish these standards is the Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR).  Under HB 3834, DIR is required to annually certify cybersecurity training programs for state and local government employees and require state and local government employees to annually complete training programs.
