League takes lead in pushing cyber crimes legislation, how you can help ensure passage

Published by: Kim Connor

January 23, 2020 | Government Affairs

The prevalence and damage posed by a cyber attack is a huge worry for credit unions of all sizes. To help prosecutors put cyber criminals behind bars in Ohio, the League has taken the lead in introducing and encouraging passage of House Bill 368, the Ohio Cyber-Crimes Act, which would increase criminal penalties for those found guilty of knowingly, and without authorization, breaching a secure on-line network for the purpose of stealing personal information. The legislation is pending in the Ohio House Criminal Justice Committee and we are close to seeing passage but need your help to secure it.

Contact Director of Legislative and Political Affairs Cory Fleming or Manager of Legislative and Political Advocacy Andrew Canan with any questions.
