At least 37 states have introduced legislation this year dealing with the cybersecurity of government agencies, 24 of which have enacted such measures, according to information from the National Conference of State Legislatures and LexisNexis State Net. The measures deal with a range of issues, including election cybersecurity, the exemption of government cybersecurity information from public records laws and studies on the use of distributed ledger technologies by government agencies.
As you can see below, Kentucky is shaded in gray, meaning the 2019 General Assembly had legislation introduced but it was not enacted. We’re researching it but believe it’s reference to legislation that was filed by Sen. Whitney Westerfield. It was one that had a lot of discussion in committee but didn’t go anyplace.
