A new report from the Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy at Salve Regina University in Rhode Island highlights the need for individual states to address cyber risk, rather than waiting for the federal government to act. Eight states in the U.S. are leading the rest in cybersecurity readiness, according to a new report from the Pell Center.
“The efforts of state governments in California, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Texas, Virginia and Washington have developed sound approaches to protect infrastructure, information, and operations,” says Senior Fellow Francesca Spidalieri. These state governments have made cybersecurity a priority in order to protect their citizens and critical infrastructure. The press release and full report can be seen here.
