Arizona Steps Up Efforts to Stop Cyber Threat

The Arizona Cyber Security Team aims to improve state agencies' ability to address threats.

Addressing cybersecurity threats became a statewide effort with the creation of the Arizona Cyber Security Team. Its nearly two dozen members come from all levels of government, colleges and the private sector. Their objectives include making recommendations on how to approach cybersecurity issues and improving how organizations across the state collaborate to address any threats.

Arizona 360 turned to Lee Le Clair, director of cyber operations for the web development firm Ephibian, for a better understanding of the vulnerabilities that exist today. He also discussed how the upcoming midterm elections could be a target for hackers.
