U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand delivered remarks on her recent work in the cybersecurity domain to members of the Queens Tech Council at the Bulova Corporate Center headquarters of the Queens Chamber of Commerce. Gillibrand, who sits on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, also joined in a roundtable discussion with tech and business leaders from across the borough.
“Technology impacts the lives of all people, including the lives of our small business owners across the country who work tirelessly to try and protect their customer information and their intellectual property,” Gillibrand said. “The work I’m doing in cybersecurity is not only imperative for our nation’s security, but also for the private sector. My proposal for a state-of-the-art Cyber Academy would focus on the training of qualified personnel and would provide civic-minded young people with a free unparalleled post-secondary technological education and a way to serve their country outside of the military.”
