Tuesday, February 24, 2015

U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow today issued the following statement regarding the selection of the Michigan National Guard for a Cyber Protection Team:

"Today's announcement is great news for Michigan and demonstrates the unique role our state plays in ensuring the safety and security of our nation. Cyber threats have become increasingly more serious as we become more reliant on computers and the Internet. Just last week, I met with the leadership at all of our Michigan National Guard bases, and this responsibility is clearly one of the urgent priorities and missions for our state. Cyber Protection is critical to addressing threats to our men and women in uniform, as well as threats to our infrastructure and economy."
