New York's two senators want more federal funding for a cybersecurity program that helps protect governments from attacks.

Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand say sanctions against Russia following the invasion of Ukraine have increased the risk of retaliatory cyberattacks. They sent a letter to the Senate Appropriations Committee leadership pushing for an increase in funding for the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center. The program is used by all states and thousands of local governments to get up-to-date cyber threat warnings and protections.
