Cybersecurity Clearinghouse

As a result of the House Committee on Urban Affairs cybersecurity workshops, TML has created a clearinghouse where cities can find mulitple resources and other information on cybersecurity. The following documents are not a comprehensive list on critical infrausture, it is meant to be a starting point for cities to gain insight, knowledge, and training on cybersecurity practices.

The Texas Association of Governmental Informational Technology Managers (TAGITM) adopted the following as recommended best practices:

MS-ISAC’s “The CIS Critical Security Controls for Effective Cyber Defense, Version 6.1 (as amended)”
