The MassCyberCenter was launched in September 2017 by Governor Charlie Baker with a vision to enhance opportunities for the Massachusetts cybersecurity ecosystem to compete as the national cybersecurity leader and to strengthen the resiliency of the Commonwealth’s public and private communities.
The MassCyberCenter's mission is to enhance conditions for economic growth through outreach to the cybersecurity ecosystem of Massachusetts, while fostering cybersecurity resiliency within the Commonwealth.
Cybersecurity encompasses the people, process, and technology that provide confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data and critical control systems that keep our Commonwealth running. The Center focuses its activities on balancing the core principles of cybersecurity: People, Process, and Technology.
The MassCyberCenter is led by Director Stephanie Helm and is steered by the Massachusetts Cybersecurity Strategy Council. The Center leads two working groups Cyber Resilient Massachusetts and Cybersecurity Training & Education to facilitate better cybersecurity planning and collaboration and promote resiliency and workforce development for the Commonwealth.
