Cyber security is the practice of protecting systems, networks, and programs from digital attacks.

Hallsville ISD's cybersecurity approach has multiple layers of protection spread across the computers, networks, programs, and data sources of our district.

Our unified threat management system is designed to automate integrations across applications and accelerate security operations functions such as detection, investigation, and remediation.
