An Analysis of Cybersecurity Legislation and Policy Creation on the State Level
Wednesday, June 5, 2019 3:15 p.m. - 3:35 p.m.
Cybersecurity legislation impacts individuals, industry, and government entities. Since legislation is often determined on a state level, an examination of laws passed by the 50 states provides a snapshot as to the priorities and attitudes of the topic across the nation. Our analysis of cybersecurity legislation reveals trends in state laws regarding cybersecurity as well as identifies related topics that are more likely to pass or fail at the state level. Additionally, the results point to states who are cybersecurity pioneers and examines the impact of federal legislation on state law.
