New Hampshire secures federal grant to fund cybersecurity trainings | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #ransomware

New Hampshire state officials will spend $300,000 to fund training exercises to help school leaders and city officials combat cyberattacks, as officials continue to raise the alarm about preparedness.

Under a federal grant recently approved by the Executive Council, the Department of Information Technology will have three years to design materials for cyber incident response training. 

The grant funding comes as state and federal officials have warned that cyber attacks against public sector targets are increasing, and have urged local governments and organizations to get training. Many attacks come from overseas and involve ransomware, where the infiltrators hold sensitive information such as employees’ Social Security numbers hostage in exchange for a demanded payout. The federal government does not advise that victims of those attacks pay the ransom.
