What is TAC §202? 

Texas Administrative Code Chapter 202 (TAC §202) outlines the minimum information security and cybersecurity responsibilities and roles at state agencies and institutions of higher education.   

TAC §202 requires agencies and institutions of higher education to use the TAC §202 Security Controls Standards Catalog.  The security controls catalog is based on the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication (SP) 800-53, R5. Using a centrally managed controls catalog effectively ensures that all agencies and institutions use common language and minimum standards when implementing security measures.
