Below you will find legislative information and updates related to municipal cybersecurity in Florida. We will continue adding resources as they become available. 

Local governments will now be required to adopt cybersecurity standards that safeguard data, information technology, and information technology resources to ensure availability, confidentiality, and integrity. The bill specifies that those standards must be consistent with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) generally acceptable best practices.
