Cyber Security Training

The annual cybersecurity training requirement (Texas Government Code section 2054.5191) is due to the Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR) by August 31, 2022. The Pool’s cybersecurity training program is DIR approved. You can access this training through the Pool’s YouTube channel, the online learning center, or downloadable lesson plan.


 

The Pool has 3 DIR-certified options available free of charge:

The first option is a video, along with a self-administered test. The video is fun yet informative and less than 20 minutes in length. This option is available to anyone who can access the website. You can simply click on the video below or click on this link to view the video on YouTube:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pCRbR2ka_0o

The second option is an instructor-led format that includes both a PowerPoint guide and lesson plan, along with the testing materials.

The third option, available to Risk Pool members only, is an online version available through the Pool's online learning page. This option is approximately 30 minutes in length and includes the testing materials.

Once training is completed by your entity, please see the Cybersecurity Training Certification for Local Governments form or the DIR website at dir.texas.gov/ and look for the Cybersecurity Awareness Training page. The form is due to the DIR by June 15, 2021. Local governments use the DIR form to verify compliance after training has been completed.

The entity does not need to send certificates of completion or sign-in sheets to the DIR. If the entity has such items, it is recommended that the local government retain certificates and sign-in sheets.

For further assistance, please contact Ryan Burns at rburns@tmlirp.org or 800-537-6655, extension 3427.
