New York State Police Acting Superintendent Steven A. Nigrelli said, “Law enforcement is constantly challenged to keep pace with evolving online technologies that are utilized by criminals to steal from the public or gain access to sensitive information. We want to remind the public that just like you should be aware of your physical surroundings, you should be aware of your online presence too. The State Police will continue to work with our partners in safeguarding our cybersecurity networks.”

Department of Financial Services Superintendent Adrienne A. Harris said, “The Department of Financial Services is a pioneer in recognizing the risk of cyberattacks and the importance of adapting to new threats and more sophisticated cyber criminals. The Department’s first-in-the-nation requirements to protect DFS-regulated banks, insurance companies, financial services institutions and the consumers they serve stand as a model and I applaud Governor Hochul for advancing a comprehensive plan to address these issues across government and other critical industries.” 

Chair and Chief Executive Officer of the Public Service Commission Rory M. Christian said, “New York is a hub for significant financial, governmental, manufacturing, and transportation infrastructure that has higher than normal risk of cyberattack for either criminal or geopolitical reasons. With her drive and determination, Governor Hochul’s leadership will help ensure that New York has the best cybersecurity protection available.”

SUNY Chancellor John B. King, Jr. said, “SUNY campuses are leading in cybersecurity education, both in preparing our students for jobs, and in providing cutting-edge laboratories for faculty, staff, and student research. Our students are in high demand for jobs, and we are thankful for the Governor’s investment to help us educate more New Yorkers in this field, and, via the Digital Transformation Fund in the 2024 enacted budget, protect our campuses from cyberattacks. We applaud Governor Hochul for leading this comprehensive statewide strategy.”

New York State Health Commissioner Dr. James McDonald said, “Under Governor Hochul’s leadership, New York State has significantly enhanced its cyber defenses, which is critically important to our health care system. This first-ever statewide cybersecurity strategy builds on these achievements by helping protect critical systems from cyber threats. The Department of Health looks forward to continuing to work closely with our agency partners on ensuring New York’s hospitals and health care facilities stay secure.”
