Got the grants, now they need guidance

While NASCIO entered 2022 with some of its longstanding federal priorities finally starting to be realized, like a cybersecurity grant program, the organization is now looking to Washington to refine and clarify how that new program will actually work. “It’s been authorized and appropriated, now we’re figuring out the ground rules," Executive Director Doug Robinson said. Along with working out the grant program, NASCIO also listed as its top federal goals reforming the FCC's broadband mapping methodology, more adoption of the .gov domain and the continued push to harmonize federal cyber regulations.

CDT called 'slow'

California’s state auditor on Tuesday published a report showing that that the California Department of Technology has been “slow to assess” the information security practices throughout the state, but top cybersecurity officials said the investigation’s limited scope didn’t account for many relevant factors.

Have you ever pressed the wrong button in the pale moonlight?

The Missouri State Highway Patrol this week had to backpedal on an emergency alert that went out to mobile phones statewide warning residents that criminals in a purple-and-green Dodge roadster were tearing through "Gotham City." Alas, the alert reminiscent of the cars driven by the Joker in 1989's "Batman" was a test that went awry after "an option was incorrectly selected, allowing the message to be disseminated to the public," the patrol said. Why so serious?
