RICHMOND, Va. — Gov. Terry McAuliffe is creating a new commission tasked with promoting cyber security economic development opportunities.

McAuliffe signed an executive order Wednesday establishing the commission. The governor says the commission will help make Virginia the world’s leader in cyber security.

The commission will be made up of McAuliffe cabinet appointments and 11 private citizens appointed by the governor.

One of the new commission’s tasks will be to offer suggestions on how to promote “cyber hygiene” among Virginia’s citizens.
