Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This bill requires local governments to report (to the state director of emergency management) any cyber attack incident, data breach or identified use of malware that "creates a life-safety event; substantially impacts the security of data and information systems; or affects critical systems, equipment or service delivery".  It then authorizes any portion of a local government meeting that discusses or votes upon a cybersecurity issue to be held in executive session.  Lastly, it exempts local government records, data and information concerning cybersecurity from the Open Records Act.
