State governors and the Homeland Security and Defense departments said they've agreed on a joint plan to help strengthen cybersecurity across the United States.

The National Governors Association said in a July 15 press release that the joint action plan on cybersecurity was adopted by the presidentially appointed Council of Governors and the two departments during NGA's summer meeting last week in Nashville, Tenn.

The plan (pdf) the group said, creates a framework to guide state-federal discussions around information sharing, incident response and operational coordination.

 The plan would ensure that the National Guard can be used to support federal and state missions. It also aims to improve federal-state coordination on incident management and response as well as enhance information exchange.

"The significant and continued growth of cyber-attacks against the United States makes cybersecurity a critical issue for all governors," Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, who co-chairs the Council of Governors and the NGA-created Resource Center for State Cybersecurity, said in a statement.

"As governors, we are responsible for ensuring the security of not only a wide array of state-owned assets, but also the private sector assets within our states," he added
