Crossing state lines for cyber

A bill introduced Friday in the U.S. Senate would create a pilot program in which National Guard units would be allowed to help respond remotely to cyberattacks that occur outside their home states. The bill would allow the Army and Air Force to create pilot programs in which one state’s National Guard could assist one of its counterparts with cybersecurity training and incident response. The National Guard has an a growing role in individual states' cybersecurity efforts, particularly in response to ransomware attacks and election security. More recently, some states have been using their Guards' cybersecurity teams to defend government websites that are providing critical services during the COVID-19 pandemic, such as unemployment benefits and public-health advisories.   Benjamin Freed reports.

In interviews with StateScoop, Illinois CIO Ron Guerrier and Sacramento, California, Chief Innovation Officer Louis Stewart opened up about times they've been mistaken for something other than an IT executive, what they say to their kids about police violence and how they can use tech policy to promote real equity. Read their stories.
