The Center for Internet Security, a nonprofit focused on assisting “under-served and under-resourced” entities, has recently seen a fivefold increase in state and local governments signing up for its cybersecurity services, according to CIS’ John Gilligan, who sees opportunities to expand the outreach under legislation pending in Congress.

“As an organization, we’re at a point where we have been able to realize significant influence in both the state and local environment, [and] the broader worldwide cybersecurity community through our products, and it’s accelerated recently,” Gilligan said.
