The U.S. government has had a busy few weeks, sending representatives to a score of conventions including the annual meeting of hackers, Defcon, that takes place in Las Vegas each year. According to a published report, the Department of Homeland Security hopes to improve cyber security defenses in a number of innovative ways.
The Shreveport Times reports that Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said this week during a visit to Louisiana that she hoped other states would follow the state's lead. The state's Cyber Innovation Center often collaborates with area schools and universities in an effort to fortify cyber security defenses - a model that other states should be emulating, Napolitano affirmed.
"The uniqueness here is the integration of different elements," she said this week. "Now we can begin to see how does that integration grow and begin to see how that can be replicated across the country."
Bossier City, a community Napolitano visited, is at the forefront of the development of cyber security protocols because both private and public organizations work together to produce actionable results, she asserted.
