Statewide Cybersecurity Task Forces

9/13/2019

At least 24 states have created a statewide cybersecurity task force, commission or advisory council or group in the past several years.

Although most have been created by executive order, at least eight states created these initiatives through legislation. In addition, Georgia authorized legislative study committees in 2016 and 2017 to examine cybersecurity issues, as did Indiana in 2016.
