Aging technology and a growing threat of cyberattacks on Minnesotans’ private data are reasons the state should spend another $125 million to update and protect its IT systems, according to Gov. Mark Dayton and his administration.
“Our technology systems are the lifeblood of how we keep government running,” said Thomas Baden, Minnesota IT Services commissioner, at a Tuesday news conference. “Millions of Minnesotans’ private data is at risk.”
