CYBERSECURITY

Cybersecurity and Preparedness

One of the significant challenges of the digital age is the protection of online assets and communications from threats posed by hacking, online theft or fraud, and misinformation intended to harm company reputations or capabilities.

To protect against these threats, the Louisiana Cybersecurity Commission was established in 2018 under a charter signed by Governor John Bel Edwards, and tasked with coordinating cybersecurity efforts among Louisiana government agencies and organizations in both the public and private sectors.

The Cybersecurity Commission formed eight committees to investigate and implement measures to ensure the security of Louisiana’s cyber-ecosystem. One of those committees is the Private Sector and Economic Development Committee, co-chaired by Louisiana Economic Development (LED) and the Louisiana Business Emergency Operations Center (LABEOC). The mission of the committee is to “facilitate economic development by promoting a cyber-safe Louisiana for businesses and consumers.”

This section of the LABEOC will serve as an information sharing portal in cybersecurity for Louisiana businesses and private sector entities, and as a resource for procedures, best practices, and lessons-learned in cybersecurity risk management. Links and references to current online resources are provided below. This resource base will be expanded to include new sources as they become available. LABEOC and LED welcome additional references, company best practices, and recommendations or ideas for addition to this section.
