Kenyatta hopes to protect Pennsylvania from digital threats

With the state of Pennsylvania facing a rising number of cyberattack threats, Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta (D-Philadelphia) hopes one of his newest bills will bolster state protections by establishing a Cybersecurity Innovation Commission.  

The commission would be charged with conducting regular cybersecurity audits, enhancing security and privacy standards as well as analyzing cybersecurity protocols. Kenyatta says the commission would help centralize cybersecurity protections across state government, offering a more streamlined system.
