October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month in Hawai‘i
Gov. David Ige proclaimed October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month in Hawai‘i in recognition of the state’s role in identifying, protecting and responding to cyber threats that may have significant impact to individual and collective security and privacy.
The State continues work on several cyber security initiatives, such as improving coordination of county, city, state and federal government cyber security activities, leveraging the Fusion Center’s role in working with private sector partners to improve their cyber security posture and developing a skilled cyber workforce by working with educators and enhancing the cyber security of critical infrastructure providers.
“Cybersecurity is a team effort. We’re collaborating within state and local government, along with private sector partners to improve education, information sharing and resilience to cyber security issues,” said Vincent Hoang, State Chief Information Security Officer, of the Office of Enterprise Technology Services.
ETS’ partners in the State Department of Defense and the University of Hawai‘i are also conducting various cyber security activities this month.
