Security Email Distribution Lists

Another way that DIR shares up-to-date information with statewide IT personnel is through our Security Email Distribution Lists. All requests to join these lists must come from state agency-designated Information Resource Managers (IRMs) or Information Security Officers (ISOs). If you have any questions regarding the lists please contact the Office of the CISO. All requests are submitted for approval to the list administrator. Approval notifications are granted via email. The subscriber lists are confidential and available only to the list administrator.

NOTE:  These lists are designated for state business and should not be used for personal gain. Only state and local Texas government employees are eligible to subscribe to these lists.
