The report, "Public-Sector Information Security: A Call to Action for Public-Sector CIOs," was funded by the Arlington, Va.-based PricewaterhouseCoopers Endowment for the Business of Government and builds upon lessons learned during a conference on emerging cyberthreats attended by state officials in November.

"More than anything else, this report is a call to action, written with a sense of urgency and dedicated to the victims and families of the September 11th attacks on America."
