​To address the growing cyber threat to networks, personal privacy, and critical infrastructure, Governor "Jerry" Brown directed his Office of Emergency Services and the California Department of Technology​ to establish the California Cybersecurity Task Force. The California Cybersecurity Task Force is a statewide partnership comprised of key stakeholders, subject matter experts, and cybersecurity professionals from California's public sector, private industry, academia, and law enforcement. The Task Force serves as an advisory body to the State of California Senior Administration Officials in matters related to Cybersecurity.
