Cybersecurity Policy Advisors Network

The Cybersecurity Policy Advisors Network serves as a forum to share ideas and troubleshoot challenges with colleagues from other states, connect advisors with valuable resources and materials and provide opportunities to hear from subject-matter experts via periodic calls, webinars and workshops. Members of the network are identified by Governors’ offices to speak to the Governor’s priorities as they relate to cybersecurity.

For more information about the network please contact Center for Best Practice’s Cybersecurity Program Director Steve Fugelsang.

The Network is part of NGA’s work to provide Governors with resources, tools and recommendations to help craft and implement effective state cybersecurity policies and practices.  Please visit the Resource Center for State Cybersecurity for more on our work in the area.
