CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan has issued an executive order establishing a Cybersecurity Integration Center.

Hassan, a Democrat, said Friday the center will provide the state with a centralized body and space to coordinate the state’s response, mitigation, and recovery efforts to protect against cyberattacks and secure private personal information.

An oversight commission with representatives from various state agencies will oversee its operations.

Initiatives to strengthen cybersecurity in New Hampshire include replacing outdated and less secure computers and computer systems; updating security software; and implementing cybersecurity training for state employees.
