League supports Ohio Computer Crimes Act

Published by: Jared Weiser

While your credit union is busy taking care of its members, the League regularly heads to the Ohio Statehouse to advocate for your ability to serve them more efficiently and effectively. This past week the League and Desco Federal Credit Union provided proponent testimony in support of Ohio House Bill 20, the Ohio Computer Crimes Act, in the Ohio House Criminal Justice Committee to close a glaring legal loophole that bad actors exploit to access sensitive data and information without penalty. By creating criminal penalties and providing civil restitution recourse, your credit union and its members are better protected from attempted and identifiable breaches. This legislation will provide credit unions, and other businesses, with peace of mind knowing that the cybercrime perpetrators will be held accountable.
