The National Cybersecurity Center (NCC) is launching a nationwide awareness initiative aimed at training state lawmakers and their staff in all 50 states on best practices in cybersecurity. The initiative, Cybersecurity for State Leaders, is supported by Google, and will include live virtual forums and interactive, on-demand workshops nationwide.
Cybersecurity for State Leaders launches with the bipartisan signing of the initiative’s Cyber Charter by Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose (R-OH) and Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold (D-CO). This nonpartisan training curriculum will prepare lawmakers and statehouse staff to be vigilant against cyber threats by offering a deep dive into: the ecosystem of cybersecurity, common types of cyber attacks, how and why cyber attacks work, and best practices on how to protect individuals against cyber threats.
By signing the charter, Secretary LaRose and Secretary Griswold commit to promoting a stronger culture of cybersecurity awareness in their offices and throughout their state and to be ambassadors for Cybersecurity for State Leaders. READ MORE>>>
