AN  ACT to authorize the New York state urban development corporation to
  enter into agreements to develop a Cyber Research Institute

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1. Legislative Findings. The legislature finds that the issue
of securing networked computer  systems  is  of  increasing  importance.
Governments  at  all levels, including the military, private businesses,
and individuals have increasingly become the targets  of  cyber  attacks
which  range  from  theft  of  privileged  or proprietary information to
destructive efforts to impede or shut down  systems  which  operate  key
elements  of infrastructure, banking and business transactions, or vital
functions of government, to name just  a  few.  The  increasing  demands
posed  by  this threat create a need for research and development in the
area of cyber security in an environment which  will  allow  pursuit  of
these  studies  in  both an open academic setting and, also, in a secure
environment  for  classified  research.  The  United  States  Air  Force
Research Lab at Rome, New York is presently conducting important work at
its Information Assurance and Cyber Science Technology Laboratory. It is
noted  that  several  private  businesses are presently engaged in cyber
science work in close proximity to the Air Force Research Lab at Rome at
the Griffiss Business and Technology Park, and several New York colleges
and universities offer undergraduate  and  graduate  programs  in  cyber
science  and  security. This combination of resources uniquely positions
the state of New York to become a leader in cyber security research  and
development.
  S 2. (a) The New York state urban development corporation shall under-
take  to establish, through public and private partnerships, which shall
include the Air Force  Research  Laboratory  at  Rome,  New  York  based
colleges  and universities, private businesses, and not-for-profit enti-
ties, a Cyber Research Institute to be located at the Griffiss  Business
and Technology Park in Rome, New York.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
