Still time to act; support stronger cyber-crime laws

Published by: Andrew Canan

October 28, 2020 | Government Affairs

The virtual day-to-day we have acclimated to in 2020 has also increased the opportunities for hackers to attack. As National Cybersecurity Awareness Month ends, there is still an opportunity to advocate for further cybersecurity measures. After passing the Ohio House of Representatives 93-1, House Bill 368 for the Ohio Computer Crimes Act is currently under Ohio Senate consideration. By updating and modernizing Ohio’s computer crime laws, HB 368 will make it easier for cyber-criminals to be prosecuted and victims to receive restitution. To ensure HB 368 becomes law, we need you to contact your state senator by submitting or customizing a pre-written email.
