Iowa has long been ahead of the curve in delivering affordable network services to the public sector.  Nearly 25 years ago, the state established the Iowa Communications Network – as both an executive branch agency and a certified telecommunications broadband carrier -- to deliver reliable network connectivity to government, public safety, education and health care clients.

And now ICN is serving as a middleman between private-sector security companies and its clients, offering an array of a la carte security services. To highlight the need for enhanced security, the agency recently announced that it was offering clients a free, extensive cyber threat assessment test.
