School cybersecurity.

Bill Subjects

School Cybersecurity.

Abstract

Existing law prohibits a school district from permitting access to pupil records to a person without written parental consent or under judicial order except as authorized by specified state and federal law. Existing law requires the Office of Emergency Services to establish and lead the California Cybersecurity Integration Center with a primary mission to reduce the likelihood and severity of cyber incidents that could damage California's economy, its critical infrastructure, or public and private sector computer networks in our state. This bill would require a school district, county office of education, and charter school to report any cyberattack, as defined, impacting more than 500 pupils or personnel to the California Cybersecurity Integration Center. By imposing new duties on local educational agencies, the bill would constitute a state-mandated local program. The bill would require the California Cybersecurity Integration Center to establish a database that tracks reports of cyberattacks submitted by local educational agencies and to annually, by January 1, submit a report to the Governor and the relevant policy committees of the Legislature with specified information related to cyberattacks or data breaches of a local educational agency. This bill would repeal those provisions as of January 1, 2027. The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement. This bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to the statutory provisions noted above.
