Which state governments have the best cybersecurity policy? The answer may surprise you. According to a new report, Idaho and Mississippi are far above the other 48 states when it comes to cybersecurity thanks to their reliance on people who actually know what the hell they’re talking about in regards to cybersecurity rather than politicians who generally know next to nothing.
When it comes to cybersecurity policy, there are two state governments that are head and shoulders above the rest of the country. But you might be surprised when you find out which two states are leading the pack: Mississippi and Idaho. The secret to their success? They developed policy based on the knowledge of people who actually know a little something about computers instead of politicians. Cybersecurity for governments has been a ~hot topic~ on Capitol Hill lately. Last month, the President announced an executive order to improve communication between the government and private sector in sniffing out cyber terrorism threats. A brand new agency to combat cyber threats also debuted.
