Cyber Security Working Group

Cyber Security Working Group

With an ever-increasing focus on cyber security, state attorneys general are turning their attention from discussions and dialogue, to action. This form of electronic crime is perceived as an ever-increasing threat to not only consumers and businesses, but toward national security.

An active group of attorneys general, senior staff, and internal cyber security experts have come to the realization that independently, individual states cannot effectively deal with this criminal activity. In their view, having the ability to coordinate actions across multistate jurisdictions and in collaboration with private sector experts, would lay the foundation for a national cyber crime initiative with teeth.

Specific working group goals include:
  1. Developing a strategy that is measurable and can be defined by what is accomplished.
  2. Identifying the best companies in this space who can come to the table to coalesce such an effort.
  3. Establishing the parameters of a high level public-private partnership initiative to work collaboratively in bringing the most effective resources to the forefront of this fight.

Working Group Initiatives

The Cyber Security Working Group lends itself to industry participants who are innovative in their approaches to work with and support the Attorney General’s Offices, who are receptive to these collaborations that are mutually beneficial.
