Justification
Governor's Recommendations 2022-23

The Governor's Budget Recommendation for Fiscal Year 2022-23 includes $420,000 ($50,000 in the Contracted Services
category and $370,000 in the Northwest Regional Data Center category) of recurring Federal Grants Trust Fund authority in
the Information Services Program to enhance the Department of Revenue's cybersecurity. This additional appropriation will
strengthen the Department's security by: expanding the Department's ability to monitor and analyze network resources for
signs of malicious activity that could be exploited to breach the Department's data security measures; monitoring hidden
areas of the internet for signs of Department data leaks, stolen passwords, and messages about potential hacks; and
performing an in-depth assessment to gauge how the Department's IT security services are maturing by providing a separate
test environment for testing possible malware. This will help identify attacks without endangering other areas of the
Department's network.

This issue was included in the Department of Revenue's Legislative Budget Request.
