About this calculator

All information resources in the state of Texas are categorized by their impact level according to Texas Administrative Code, §202.1. This impact level affects how the resource is managed, how budgets are prioritized, and guides business decisions regarding backup and recovery efforts. From an information security perspective, the impact level helps us assess the risk that is associated with a given resource.

The definitions of impact level that are found in TAC 202 is a federal standard that comes from the NIST Information Technology Library publication FIPS 199. These impact levels are used in combination with the Texas A&M Information Security Controls Catalog to selectively apply certain controls to resources at different impact levels. Please check the Applicability section inside each control for more information.
