In 2021, we launched Cybersecurity for State Leaders, a cyber hygiene training for state leaders. We offered briefings in all 50 states and trained 1,342 state and local leaders as a part of the program (see 2021 Cybersecurity for State Leaders program report for more highlights).
While reaching out to only state leaders, we were bombarded with requests from government leaders and their staff at the local level to join the training as well.
Looking towards the 2023 training program, we wanted to expand the training to be more inclusive of all government leaders and their staff.
Cybersecurity for Government Leaders was born.
