    This is great. I hope all states follow suit. To the point about what Russia is accused of doing... that was phishing. Phishing is incredibly hard to thwart in today‘s world, bc criminals are no longer writing in broken English and asking for Americans to wire money to Siberia for King Titan. They are now writing in perfectly good English, using emails that sound like they come from a colleague or CEO (spear phishing). They are playing on people‘s fears, sending emails that purport to require immediate attention to some security function (ironically). The only current mediation for this is training. Training employees to recognize the subtleties, as well as pick up a phone and call and known, existing number to confirm any strange requests like your CEO asking you to wire $$$ for an M&A deal. Employees have to know what to expect from their management in terms of these assignments, so they can better recognize when they are being duped.
