Budget: Securing State IT
IT is a fundamental part of providing government services to citizens and promoting community prosperity. State IT applications help citizens find health care providers, choose health insurance coverage, connect educational opportunities to workforce development, enjoy Minnesota’s great outdoors, and much more.
Minnesota’s budget increases the investment by $10M in FY20-21 and $10M in FY22-23 to strengthen Minnesota IT Services’ (MNIT’s) cybersecurity efforts. These resources will enhance MNIT’s cybersecurity posture at a time when cyber-attacks are increasing in sophistication and frequency.
