The Texas Cybersecurity Act: HB8 by Rep. Giovanni Capriglione

Date: March 2017

With a reliance on digitally connected infrastructure and markets, the world is experiencing an unprecedented threat to individual privacy and personal information. Cyber theft and related crime affects every part of our economy, our government, and our daily lives. The State of Texas must lead the way in developing a holistic cybersecurity strategy for our state agencies that will complement the foundation measures currently in place. Texas must be prepared and must remain vigilant.
