Securing Our eCity - Public/Private Partnership

Model Cyber City Project - In January 2010, San Diego was selected as the pilot city to create regional public-private partnerships for cybersecurity that can be used as a national model. The Mayor, Department of IT, and Police Department have participated in and supported the efforts to get this project started and expanded across the San Diego region. Securing Our eCity (SOeC) involves over 200 members and includes representatives from local, state, and federal public agencies, as well as dozens of regional private sector companies. Everyone is encouraged to participate - public sector, private sector, public/private education, and citizens. For more information, visit
