Cuomo Announces Partnership to Strengthen New York Cyber Security

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Monday that the New York State Intelligence Center has relocated to the Center for Internet Security in East Greenbush, New York, putting the state’s primary cyber security protection agency under the same roof as a leading nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing cyber security readiness and response around the globe, according to a Long Island press release.

The partnership provides the state with the opportunity to collect and analyze cyber threat information more effectively, as well as enabling state officials to better coordinate efforts with federal authorities to combat cyber threats.

“New York State has been actively putting in place new measures to bolster our cyber security and help safeguard our citizens and institutions against threats to our technology infrastructure,” Governor Cuomo said. “This alliance of top cyber experts will help foster new coordination between government, law enforcement and public safety resources so we can better safeguard our cyber systems against attack.”

The New York State Intelligence Center was established as an “all-crimes” fusion center responsible for gathering analyzing and disseminating information and intelligence to a wide variety of state, local, territorial and tribal governments, the release states. The Center for Internet Security is a global nonprofit organization aimed to enhance cyber security readiness and response of the public and private sectors.
