Under a new state law, Tex. Govt Code § 2054.5191, effective June 14, 2019, all local government employees and elected officials who have access to a local government computer system or database must complete a cyber security training program certified by the Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR) annually. A free cyber security training program has been certified by the DIR and is now available through TAC. The course was launched on Jan. 15, 2020. County officials and staff have until June 14, 2020, to complete training for the first annual requirement.

Nueces County's enrollment application for the TAC Cyber Security Training Program, will be submitted upon court approval.
Once enrolled, TAC will coordinate with the already named IT Program Administrator for the dissemination and monitoring requirements of the state mandated cyber security training for governmental employees and elected officials.
