AWR-136 Essentials of Community Cybersecurity is certified by the Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR) and meets the requirements of HB3834. HB3834 requires that all state employees that use a computer at least 25% of the time, any local government employee who has access to a local government computer system or database, and elected officials of local government must take a DIR approved cybersecurity course annually.

AWR-136 provides participants with an introduction to concepts related to community cybersecurity. Participants will examine the different types of cyber attacks, how communities are vulnerable to cyber attacks and incidents, and what types of organizations are most likely to be targeted. This course will also introduce the participants to the Community Cyber Security Maturity Model and how to use the model to build a community cybersecurity program and their cyber resilience.
