Florida man envies Texas

Florida CIO James Grant said yesterday that as his still-new Florida Digital Service takes control of the state's cybersecurity governance, he's a little jealous of more mature states, like Texas.

Grant also clarified the status of $30 million in cybersecurity funds, explaining that spending it had been subjected to legislators' approval. Benjamin Freed reports.

ICS security initiative is coming to the water sector

The Biden administration announced Thursday it is extending a voluntary cybersecurity initiative for essential control systems in the electricity sector and pipelines to facilities that supply water across the U.S. The water sector has long been considered one of the most vulnerable in the U.S. to cyberattacks. A hack last February on a facility in Florida temporarily altered the plant’s sodium hydroxide setting to a level harmful to humans, serving as a reminder of the potential danger should a more advanced group seek to cause more damage.
