RIC is meeting this challenge with the launch of the Institute for Cybersecurity and Emerging Technologies. | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #ransomware

Jim Langevin is the Distinguished Chair of the Institute for Cybersecurity and Emerging Technologies and a former member of the U.S. House of Representatives. Jen Easterly is the director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA).

Cybersecurity has fast become one of the most important issues of the day, for all Rhode Islanders, and across our nation. In late 2018, Congress established the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA), recognizing the importance of creating a civilian cyber defense agency completely dedicated to keeping the critical infrastructure Americans rely on every day safe from cyber threats.

Former U.S. Rep. James Langevin was central to passing the legislation that created CISA, and over the past few years we have worked together to address our nation’s cybersecurity challenges from our respective roles: one as a cybersecurity leader in Congress and the other as the current head of CISA. What we see is that the challenge of cybersecurity is only growing more complex and the threats more impactful, with the scourge of ransomware having devastating impacts on small businesses across the country. This reality makes cybersecurity a key issue for every business and municipality across the country, yet it is estimated that hundreds of thousands of cybersecurity positions remain unfilled.
