Hawaii Joins Cybersecurity Compact

Signed by 38 governors, the compact makes recommendations to better secure states' cyber infrastructure by building cybersecurity governance, preparing and defending the state from cybersecurity events, and growing the country's cybersecurity workforce.

Hawaii's governor, David Y. Ige, announced July 31 that that state has joined a multi-state cybersecurity compact signed by 38 governors to enhance state cybersecurity and develop the cyber workforce. The "Compact to Improve State Cybersecurity" is part of the National Governors Association's Meet the Threat: States Confront the Cyber Challenge initiative.

The compact makes recommendations to better secure states' cyber infrastructure by building cybersecurity governance, preparing and defending the state from cybersecurity events, and growing the country's cybersecurity workforce.

"The top priority of any governor is the public's welfare and safety, which now includes protecting citizens from cyber threats," Ige said. "I am proud to join my fellow governors in signing this compact and committing to its recommendations."

"Hawaii has already taken proactive steps toward the compacts goals," added state Chief Information Officer Todd Nacapuy, who leads the Office of Enterprise Technology Services, the agency responsible for securing state government information resources and infrastructure. "These include establishing a state chief information security officer, reclassifying IT security positions to align with modern industry best practices, offering cyber internship opportunities, and supporting programs such as SANS Institute's CyberStart program that encourages high school and college students to explore careers in cybersecurity."
