MS-ISAC Gets a Cybersecurity Funding Boost

May 12, 2022


The latest federal omnibus spending bill signed by President Joe Biden includes a significant boost in funding for an organization that helps state and local governments improve their cybersecurity posture.

The Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC), part of the New York-based Center for Internet Security, has received another $11 million, bringing the federal government’s total contribution to $38 million for the current fiscal year, StateScoop reports.

“The MS-ISAC already has a number of successful cybersecurity products and services that help governments reduce risk, detect threats and respond to and recover from cyberattacks,” Josh Moulin, senior vice president and acting general manager of operations and security services at the Center for Internet Security says. “An increase in funding will allow us to build on these already successful programs.”
