The NAAG Center on Cyber and Technology (CyTech) develops programs and resources to support state attorneys general and their staffs in understanding technical aspects of emerging and evolving technologies, conducting cybercrime investigations and prosecutions, and ensuring secure and resilient public and private sector networks and infrastructure. The Center also serves as an information clearinghouse for the attorney general community on trending technology issues.
The Center achieves its mission by:
- Creating a practice-based community to share information.
- Developing trainings and programs for attorneys general and attorney general staff.
- Forming strategic partnerships with other government agencies, academics, nonprofits, and the private sector on technology-related issues and developments.
- Developing and updating contact lists for attorney general offices who need connections or specific subject matter experts’ assistance.
