Edwards in North West Louisiana declares opening of Cyber-security Commission

USA's national security at the intensity like never before is focused on cyber-security today, said John Bel Edwards Governor of Louisiana on December 7, 2017 at Bossier City. The governor, while pointing out that NWLA (North West Louisiana) had turned into the country's cyber-security hub during the last decade, put his endorsement on one executive order to launch the Commission for Cyber-security, while declaring that the innovative resources of the state would be used for running the Commission.

Edwards endorsed the order following his interaction with visitors and students who had gathered at the prestigious Parkway High School, which had deputed its teams for the Maryland held feat Cyber Patriot National Finals.

Louisiana Governor's Office described cyber-attacks, which hacked into PCs, networks and related infrastructures, thus destructive for Louisiana too, posed for the state an increasing security threat as well as escalated weakening economic condition, destruction of critical infrastructure, violations of privacy, and ID-theft. CenLA Now posted this, December 7, 2017.

Edwards announced the Commission would look after the coordination of cyber-security amongst tribal governments, local governments, state agencies, academic institutions, private companies in addition to the military.

Geared with wide-ranging goals, the Commission is set to detect dangers on cyber space; encourage activities which would raise cyber-security in Louisiana; expand workforce for the state's cyber-security; create all-inclusive digital forensics along with capabilities for cyber investigation across the state; and improve Louisiana's preparedness for cyber emergency as well as response capabilities.

Edwards pointed out the tremendous growth of cyber-security. When he attended meetings with other state governors, the topic of cyber-security was an important discussion, and everyone applauded the scale of cyber-security that Louisiana State upheld.

The governor emphasized that much of cyber-security going on was at North Louisiana.

Edwards was all praise for the Center for Cyber Innovation running for a decade now at Bossier Parish, while indicating he would request Craig Spohn Executive Director of the Center to act as Chairman of Cyber-Security Commission during the 1st year from its launch.

Louisiana had shown its mettle in leading the country's cyber-security, and such had been visible exactly within NWLA, Edwards observed.
