Cybersecurity & Cryptocurrency


State Attorneys General are turning their cybersecurity focus from discussions and dialogue to action. Cybercrimes are an ever-increasing threat to consumers, businesses and national security. The Cybersecurity Subcommittee provides interested parties with an opportunity to dialogue on how mutual data security and privacy efforts might preserve online safety, protect consumers, and ensure the rule of law while also respecting the role of states to regulate such efforts.

Working group members include Attorneys General, senior staff, and specialized cybersecurity investigators and prosecutors. As operators in the field, these experts have realized that individual states are at a disadvantage in addressing these criminal activities. Having the ability to coordinate actions across jurisdictions and in collaboration with the private sector lays the foundation for national anti-cybercrime efforts with effective deterrent consequences.

The Cybersecurity Subcommittee has three primary objectives:

  • Use open discourse to develop proactive measures that ensure online consumer safety.
  • Identify noteworthy and successful partners in cybersecurity and cryptocurrency to offer industry insights and best practices.
  • Promote a high-level public-private partnership initiative to work collaboratively in bringing the most effective resources to the forefront for all parties.

At each meeting, the Attorneys General and key technology staff present the greatest issues they are facing regarding cybersecurity and cryptocurrency and elaborate on effective tools for law enforcement.

Private sector participants share their expertise as risks & threats are identified and addressed, while members work in a collaborative manner to develop solutions.
