The TX-RAMP Challenge

18 Months

223 Controls

Your Contracts on the Line

You have just 18 months from when you file for TX-RAMP Provisional to when you’re expected to pass the Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR)’s assessment of your cybersecurity program.

If you fail to earn your TX-RAMP Certification by the time your Provisional period expires, your Texas-based customers are legally barred from continuing to do business with you.

The game clock is running… Can you put the right plays together to reach the endzone in time?

Is your Cyber Insurance really going to cover you?

Only 1/3 of cyber insurance policies actually pay out in incidents. Most companies have cyber insurance policies that insure too little, or too much, and have absurdly low caps and silly exclusions.

To learn more about cyber insurance and determine if you have the right coverage for you, join us for a free vCISO Office Hours session on Tuesday, April 18 at 1 p.m. eastern time. Bring your questions!
