Cybersecurity and the States — What’s Working?

The New America Foundation has released a new report on U.S. cybersecurity efforts at the state-level. The report focuses on three key areas: responding to cyber incidents, protecting critical infrastructure, and supporting the development of a cyber workforce. One notable recommendation is a call for greater formalization and institutionalization of federal-state functions such as cyber information sharing. Such activities tend to succeed on personal relationships and connections but often decline when key individuals leave or change responsibilities.
