BOWLING GREEN - Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) will host a cybersecurity seminar in conjunction with the FBI's Counterintelligence Division and the Federal Communications Commission on Friday, March 30, from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. at Owens Community College in Perrysburg. The seminar will inform businesses about current cyber threats and how to best protect their networks and intellectual property.
“As a member of the House Republican Cybersecurity Task Force and the bipartisan Communications and Technology Cybersecurity Working Group, I know the importance of this issue and want to make sure that businesses in northern Ohio are informed and well-equipped to deal with cyber attacks,” said Latta.
The FBI estimates the global costs of cyber crime at nearly $400 billion a year, and found that there are more than one million victims of cyber crime every day.
FBI Special Agent in Charge Stephen Anthony stated, “The cyber threat is a top FBI priority and it is critical that law enforcement, businesses and citizens understand these types of threats and be prepared to combat them.”
