4/19/2006 Legislative Update 2 Theme “If you like the law or you like sausage, you should never watch either of them being made.” Otto von Bismark
4/19/2006 Legislative Update 3 Topics Executive Orders State Legislation Federal Legislation
4/19/2006 Legislative Update 4 Executive Orders “Refresh” of Governor’s original Executive Order of 12/28/00 that mandated higher ed participate in the MNT Higher ed again mentioned prominently Extends the term of the Order indefinitely However, higher ed still operates under the exemption granted by Troy Eid to Tim Foster MNT exploring its future Uncertain what might transpire in this regard
4/19/2006 Legislative Update 5 State Legislation S 24, H ? – the SASID Requires use of the 10-digit State Assigned Student ID (SASID) from K-12 to be used for reporting purposes Goal is greater accountability (?) Do not believe that we need to accept its use for delivery of services (e.g. COF stipends, web services, etc.) Rick Beck has a Banner mod queued up
4/19/2006 Legislative Update 6 S 10, H 1157 – CISO Legislation Establishes a CISO, to be appointed by the Governor Funds the CISO office via State Agency budgets after year 1 Requires State Agencies to Implement IT Security policies and procedures developed by the CISO Gives the CISO authority to suspend services Institutes reporting requirements Amended to include a section pertaining to higher ed (see next page) Higher ed fiscal note was not included in the legislation?
4/19/2006 Legislative Update 7 Section Institutions of higher education… 1. By July 1, 2007, each institution shall develop an IT security plan, in coordination with CCHE 2. Including a) Periodic risk assessments… b) Process for providing adequate IT security… c) Information security awareness training… d) Periodic testing of the effectiveness… e) A process for detecting, reporting and responding to security incidents… and reporting them to the CISO f) Plans and procedures to ensure continuity of operations…
4/19/2006 Legislative Update 8 Section Institutions of higher education… (cont’d) 3. By July 1, 2007, the plans shell be submitted to CCHE who will then submit them to the CISO Comments on HB 1157 IT environments in higher ed are vastly different from those in state agencies Our focus should be risk management, rather than adherence to specific policies and procedures Our amendment was accepted with the understanding that our IT security incidents must stop! Impractical, but we must do our best Monthly meetings queued up (3 rd Tuesday, 9 AM to noon)
4/19/2006 Legislative Update 9 Other State Legislation Pertains to State Agencies, and not higher ed (for now) – multiple bills Strengthens OIT oversight Strengthens IMC oversight Requires formal project management A new class description in the state personnel system Requires Independent validation and verification (IV&V) Why? Reaction to large, disastrous state “IT projects,” incl. CBMS and others
4/19/2006 Legislative Update 10 Comments Apparently, there is a strong desire to include higher ed under the oversight of both the IMC and OIT Incongruous with the funding MOU between the JBC and CCHE in the mid-80’s We do not understand this, because we have universally conducted successful projects Sometimes with expected “burps,” but generally successful and with very limited resources Julie agreed to have the CCHE CIO Council prepare an analysis of such oversight this summer, and present it to John Picanso, State CIO More to come…
4/19/2006 Legislative Update 11 Federal Legislation S – The Community Broadband Act of 2005: McCain-Lautenberg Prevents “a state or political subdivision thereof, any agency, authority, or instrumentality of a state or political subdivision thereof, or any Indian tribe” from enacting legislation that prohibits local governments and states from providing broadband services, either directly or in partnership with private-sector providers; Ensures that local governments cannot use their regulatory authority to discriminate against private-sector providers of broadband services; and Ensures that federal and state telecommunications laws and regulations apply to all providers.
