NY State Office of Cyber Security & Critical Infrastructure
State Broadband Capacity Building:
This funding will support the New York State Broadband Program Office. This office has the responsibility of leading broadband policy within New York State as well as identifying and securing federal funds for their stated purpose that “every New Yorker has access to affordable, high-speed broadband.”
This project is a partnership between the New York State Office of Cyber Security and the New York Library Association to disseminate curricula created by the New York State Broadband Development and Deployment Council that meet the state’s digital literacy standards. By training 1,440 librarians across 755 public libraries in New York, this project will facilitate the formal adoption of state-based curriculum into the compulsory continuing education state certification process.
Data Collection, Integration, and Validation:
This project was originally funded for broadband planning activities and two years of data collection. In September of 2010, this project was amended to extend data collection activities for an additional three years and to identify and implement best practices.
Address File Development:
OCS will conduct as innovative and cost-effective system to establish mapping coordinates for the remaining four million address points in New York.
