A special report on cybersecurity

October might be National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, but state and local government officials and their counterparts in higher education endeavor to be aware of the risks facing their networks and critical infrastructure the other 11 months of the year, too. It's also something that's still changing after nearly two years in a pandemic. Since the onset of COVID-19, government tech leaders have constantly had to refine their policies as digital services and remote work exploded, and continue to remain overwhelmingly popular. In a series of articles, interviews and commentaries, StateScoop and EdScoop reporters and contributors offer a few things to be aware of. See the full report.

The Virginia Information Technology Agency will soon offer artificial intelligence and machine learning software as a service to its fellow agencies, enabling a new method for officials to detect fraud and optimize predictive analytics. Jonathan Ozovek, VITA’s chief operating officer, told StateScoop the agency is planning to offer an AI-powered product to the commonwealth’s health, transportation and public-safety departments. “We’re going to scope it by use case so we don’t boil the ocean, so we give some kind of standardized input and output," Ozovek said. Ryan Johnston has details.


'Cybersecurity is homeland security'

For most states, cybersecurity is primarily under the domain of the information technology agency. But as more officials move toward a whole-of-government approach toward protecting networks and critical infrastructure, cyber is increasingly blended with emergency response, disaster management and homeland security. Arizona made it official in April, when state CISO Tim Roemer was given the additional role of homeland security director. In a wide-ranging interview for StateScoop's Priorities podcast, Roemer discusses this new strategy and why he hopes it'll catch on elsewhere. “I’m a firm believer in this: Cybersecurity is homeland security, and we need people around the country to start focusing on that,” he says.
