The National Governors' Association Center for Best Practices (NGA) will continue supporting Cyber and Electronic Crime Policy Project. NGA has established the National Policy Council on Cyber and Electronic Crimes, comprised of policymakers and law enforcement officials at the state, local, and federal levels, representatives from the private industry, including the financial, communications, and electronic sectors, and representatives from other relevant public and private institutions. The project will continue to investigate solutions and address challenges to the growing threat of cyber and electronic crimes, as well as address the consequents of the rapidly evolving and expanding technological threats now faced by law enforcement agencies, private financial and communications, and the public at-large.

The goal of the project is to investigate solutions and address challenges to the growing threat of cyber and electronic crime. Toward this end, we have established a National Policy Council on Cyber and Electronic Crime comprised of policymakers and law enforcement officials at state, local, and federal levels, representatives from private industry, including the financial, communications, and electronic sectors, and representatives from other relevant public and private institutions.

Through the work of the policy council, we are identifying key recommendations that governors and other state policymakers can implement to more effectively and strategically address cyber and electronic crime.
