In response to the growing number of cyberattacks across the County, County Executive George Latimer in 2022 created a CyberSecurity Task force to review current policies and procedures of the County and to research the current state of threat mitigation. The major goal of the Cybersecurity Task force is to offer best tools and practices to the County, local municipalities, government entities, nonprofits, small businesses and individuals who are facing the possible theft or loss of cyber assets and data.

The County Executive charged the Task Force with designing and implementing ways to disseminate this information across the County, through town halls and other outreach, including this website.

The County Executive created the Task Force with 9 members, 3 appointed by the Board of Legislators, to serve 3-year terms.
