State officials have unveiled a cybersecurity strategy for Connecticut.

The strategy is based on 70 principals: leadership, literacy, preparation, response, recovery, communication and verification– applicable to every person, government agency and business in the state.

The next step is creation and implementation of an actual cybersecurity plan, set to debut within a few months.

“Our citizens need to understand that we are under attack constantly,” said Gov. Dannel P. Malloy. “It’s just the reality. They are getting more sophisticated all the time.”
