Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance, Jr. and New York City Police Commissioner James O’Neill today announced the public launch of the New York City Cyber Critical Services and Infrastructure (“CCSI”) Project in a Wall Street Journal opinion piece. Over the past year, CCSI has been working to protect New York City’s infrastructure – including emergency services, water systems, energy producers, and other critical services – from cyberattacks through intelligence-sharing and the early-stage development of coordinated responses across 17 industry sectors.
D.A. Vance and Commissioner O’Neill today made CCSI’s efforts public in a call for additional New York-based cybersecurity experts to join the Project, citing an “unprecedented opportunity to serve and protect New Yorkers.” Local cybersecurity experts can sign up to join the CCSI Project now at manhattanda.org/CCSI.
