RICHMOND, VA (May 19, 2014) — Governor Terry McAuliffe has named CyberPoint's Paul Kurtz to the Virginia Cybersecurity Commission. Created by executive order, the commission brings together public and private sector experts who will develop recommendations for developing the Commonwealth of Virginia into a cybersecurity leader.
"This group of experts, industry leaders, and administration officials will work together to identify ways in which the public and private sector can work together to bolster Virginia's cybersecurity industry so we can expand Virginia's economic footprint in cyber technology and protect the Commonwealth from cyber threats," said Governor McAuliffe. "The Commission will also explore opportunities to advance education in key STEM sectors that will support a workforce pipeline to prepare Virginia students for jobs in industries of the 21st Century including cybersecurity."
