Relating to emergency management for cybersecurity events threatening this state.
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
HB 2066 would allow the governor to order the Department of Information Resources to disconnect a government computer network from the Internet in the event of a cybersecurity event.
As HB 2066 does not pertain to the liberty principles, Texas Action is neutral on this bill. However, the term "Cybersecurity event" does not appear to have a statutory definition. The bill would be improved with the addition of such a definition.
