A coalition of business groups focused on cybersecurity are asking Congress to provide “dedicated funding” to help state and local governments bolster their defenses against cyber attacks during the global health crisis.
“During this unprecedented period, State and local cybersecurity and IT workforces have seen their capacity diminished by health concerns and telework inefficiencies,” the groups said in a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) on Monday.
