MADISON (WKOW) – Wisconsin's Homeland Security Council will host a summit on cyber threats at Marquette University on October 11.
The agenda includes presentations on how local and state government agencies can protect themselves against online attacks, the history of cyber threats, the FBI's perspective on the online world and the South Carolina Department of Revenue's response to a hacker who stole information from tax filings on 3.8 million adults, almost 2 million of their dependents and 700,000 businesses last year.
Major General Don Dunbar, Wisconsin's homeland security advisor, is leading the summit and describes it as a chance to step back and analyze the current cyber environment. The summit will also help officials define the state's role in emergency cyber responses.
