Raise the cyber shield: The NYPD and Manhattan DA are right to bolster NYC’s defenses against hackers’ attacks
The NYPD, a nonprofit called the New York City Cyber Command and Global Cyber Alliance, the Manhattan DA’s office and private businesses have just launched the nation’s first local cybersecurity operations center, where the public and private sectors work together to identify and combat threats.
Discussions about the cyber initiative began in 2017, when a handful of local leaders in the law enforcement, intelligence and security communities assessed how New York City would respond if a terrorist attacked its water supply, Mr. Vance said.
