Most States Taking Action on Cybersecurity

 As of Oct. 30 at least 43 states had introduced over 240 bills and resolutions related to cybersecurity this year, according to analysis of LexisNexis State Net data by the National Conference of State Legislatures. Twenty-seven of those states have enacted bills, and four have adopted resolutions. Among other things, the measures provide additional funding for cybersecurity, mandate the implementation of specific cybersecurity practices by government agencies or businesses, increase penalties for cybercrimes and address cyberthreats to critical infrastructure.
