Assemblymember Jacqui Irwin Appointed Chair of Select Committee on Cybersecurity

Will Examine California’s Role in Addressing Cybersecurity Threats

Sacramento—Assemblymember Jacqui Irwin (D-Thousand Oaks) has been appointed by Speaker Toni G. Atkins as chair of the Select Committee on Cybersecurity. The committee was created in light of recent cyber security threats that have left millions of Americans at risk of identity theft. As chair of the committee, Irwin recently joined President Obama and other national leaders at the White House’s Summit on Cybersecurity and Consumer Protection to address California’s role in preventing and responding to security threats.

“Cybersecurity is an issue of rapidly growing importance and I believe the State bears a responsibility to address the rising threat of cyber-attacks,” said Assemblymember Irwin. “In light of the recent attacks on Sony and Anthem, it is clear that this issue affects all citizens and will continue to be a matter of public safety.”
