As many vendors appear to be unable to secure their systems unless compelled, we’ve wondered if or when, legislation would come, that would actually move the needle somehow in the K12/EDU security space.
Now with the California’s SB-327 we have actually seen movement. The bill calls for many different types of security enhancements to software and hardware in order to be compliant. These enhancements have started to roll out and IT and Security people have started to see the actual impact in the wild.
I’ll try to keep a running list of hardware/firmware/software that state they were impacted by this bill.
Hat tip to Vince V. for pointing this out.
