CHARLESTON, WV (LOOTPRESS) – Gov. Justice took time out of his remarks about COVID-19 to announce that he has proclaimed October as Cybersecurity Awareness Month in West Virginia.
“This month we are partnering with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to bring awareness to cyber threats and internet safety measures,” Gov. Justice said. “I proudly signed the Secure West Virginia Act into law in 2019, which creates the framework for managing cybersecurity risks and enhancing cybersecurity in the state.”
The goal of the campaign is to help ensure West Virginians understand how to use the internet more safely in their everyday lives and to ensure all public agencies are familiar with the resources available to them to prevent and respond to a cyber attack.
