Washington Post, April 21, 2020

Top tech and cybersecurity trade groups said in a letter to House leadership that state and local governments were already facing serious cybersecurity woes and increased remote working during the pandemic has made them even more vulnerable.
The letter endorses a plan submitted earlier this month by Reps. Bennie G. Thompson (D-Miss), chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, and Cedric Richmond (D-La.), who chairs the committee’s cybersecurity panel.
Groups that signed the letter include the Alliance for Digital Innovation, BSA | The Software Alliance, Computing Technology Industry Association, Cyber Threat Alliance, Cybersecurity Coalition and Global Cyber Alliance.
