Pennsylvania CIO John MacMillan says he's stepping down

Pennsylvania CIO John MacMillan will step down next month after nearly eight years in the role, he said last week. MacMillan, who announced his resignation to NASCIO's messaging board, said he will depart Nov. 11, just weeks ahead of Gov. Tom Wolf being termed out of office. “Our stories of public service inspire me and demonstrate what real team work can accomplish,” MacMillan wrote. In an interview with StateScoop earlier this year, MacMillan credited an executive order that Wolf signed in 2019, codifying the technology department’s responsibility to create a “citizen-first” government, which MacMillan said has helped establish requirements for new IT projects, ensuring his state will be ready for the future.

The NFL's expansive tech assets run from back-office systems in league headquarters to on-field devices. Benjamin Freed has more.

Chinese influence campaign 'aggressively' targets midterms

A pro-Chinese government information operation is “aggressively targeting the United States” across a variety of fronts, including by attempting to discredit the U.S. democratic process and “discourage Americans from voting in the 2022 U.S. midterm elections,” researchers at Mandiant said Wednesday. The influence campaign has included English-language videos on social media that mention "civil war" alongside references to the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol and attempt to sow doubt about the importance of voting.

MS-ISAC is a no-cost, community-driven approach to cyber threat prevention
