The Democratic governor signed an executive order creating Rhode Island s first Homeland Security Advisory Board Thursday. The seven-member board will work with the state s cybersecurity officer, law enforcement and other stakeholders to monitor the state s progress on implementing recommendations from the Cybersecurity Commission.

The order dissolves that commission, which last met in December 2015. Raimondo established the commission in 2015 to figure out how to better protect the state from cyber threats while growing its industry and economy. It recommended strategically integrating cybersecurity into the state s homeland security mission. The advisory board is charged with issuing a report evaluating the status of Rhode Island s cybersecurity plan by December.

Second-graders said thank you to #MPCSServantLeaders[2] like Captain Broadnax. We know this was one of many heartfelt goodbyes for summer. Make this summer memorable #MPCSFamily[3]! See you in August. In the video, you see the kids hugging him and giving him high-fives. Captain Broadnax, a military veteran, told ABC News[4], the kids were thanking him for keeping them safe. They were saying things like, Thank you for protecting us. Thank you so much, Mr. Jonathan; thank you for keeping us safe. You can t hear the sound on the video, but that was what they were actually saying. Oh man, I tell you, if the video ran just a little bit longer, you would see me run inside and cry.
