Security is an unmoderated discussion list that allows Information Technology (IT) professionals in Texas government to share information and to collaborate with their peers via email. Subscribers may use the list to:

  • seek advice from other government IT staff regarding security issues

  • receive updates on current security alerts

  • discuss technical issues

  • request referrals or opinions about IT security products and services

  • share resources and expertise

  • The list is open to personnel from Texas State agencies & universities. There is no fee for subscribing. Participation is completely voluntary. The list is hosted by the Department of Information Resources (DIR) and the value of the security mail list is entirely dependent upon the interaction of its members.

    To see the collection of prior postings to the list, visit the security Archives. (The current archive is only available to the list members.)
