The Kentucky Commission on Military Affairs is seeking a consultant to study the cybersecurity industry in the state.
The study — made possible through assistance from DOD’s Office of Economic Adjustment — will analyze the state’s current cybersecurity infrastructure (power grids, air traffic controllers, financial systems, communication networks, stored personal identified information) to determine the overall readiness in protecting critical structures and information. Additionally, the study will assess how Kentucky can develop this sector for economic potential.
Based on analysis of current readiness, the consultant will make recommendations concerning industry sector opportunities, education, legislation, economic incentives and workforce structure to ensure the commonwealth has efficient and robust systems in place in order to protect statewide infrastructure, organizations and the privacy of its citizens.
The RFP is available on the state procurement website. Bid proposals are due June 30.
