TX-RAMP: D2L’s Security Compliance in Texas

D2L Brightspace has Level 2 certification for TX-RAMP, a new standard of security for cloud-based services that operate in the state.

What’s New

D2L Brightspace has achieved Level 2 certification for the Texas Risk and Authorization Management Program, or TX-RAMP.


TX-RAMP is a state risk and authorization management program developed and managed by the Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR). The program provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring of cloud computing services used by Texas state agencies, including public higher education institutions.

Authorization and certification under TX-RAMP requires cloud computing services to conform to a subset of the NIST 800-53 cybersecurity controls.
