This bill provides for a cybersecurity awareness training program for all State, county, and municipal officers and employees and certain State contractors. Under the bill, all State officers and employees in the Executive Branch and the Judicial Branch of State government will be required to complete such a program in each calendar year. The Chief Technology Officer of the Office of Information Technology will approve the format and content of the training program, which will be provided online. The program may include content which in particular addresses the situations of certain identified groups of officers or employees, such as those who are involved in contracting processes. The requirement in this bill includes officers and employees of State authorities and of public institutions of higher education. Members of the Legislature and the officers and employees in the Legislative Branch, as well as officers and employees of the counties and municipalities in the State, will also be required to complete the program approved by the Chief Technology Officer. Finally, the bill requires State contractors and subcontractors and their officers and employees who have access to the State computer system or a State database to complete the same cybersecurity awareness training program as a term and condition of the State contract, except that the Chief Technology Officer may include content in the program which in particular addresses the situations of such contractors and their officers and employees. The bill requires periodic audits to ensure compliance with the requirements of this bill.
