This morning Major General Harris, MAJ Mamula, OC3 Cyber Preparedness and Response Subcommittee Chair Bob Pardee, and I joined the Governor, the LT Governor, Secretary of State Frank LaRose, and State Senator Theresa Gavarone at the Statehouse for the signing of Senate Bill 52. It was a very exciting moment for the OC3. Thank you to all of you who have worked so hard to develop the vision and the legislation, and who then worked hard to get it passed. This bill is now law, and the Ohio Cyber Reserve is a real organization. This is a great day for Ohio.
Now comes the hard part, putting the Ohio Cyber Reserve into action. We have been working very diligently over the last few months developing regulations, systems and procedures, and processes for the teams. The TAG has committed to getting the first two teams up quickly, and we are going to do just that, followed by the rest of the teams throughout Ohio.
Thanks again to all of you. Below are the first news stories, I am sure we will have more to follow. Attached is a picture of the signing.
