Senator Joseph Griffo is announcing that next month six senate committees will team up to assess New York State’s cyber security.
The hearing will discuss whether or not the state is prepared to prevent, recover and respond to cyber-security attacks as well as the ability to protect the privacy of state taxpayers.

The FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center says in just 2012, more than $500 million in losses were reported due to internet fraud and computer attacks.

The Six Committees participating in the hearing are, the Senate Standing Committees on:

  • Banking
  • Veterans, Homeland Security and Military Affairs
  • Insurance
  • Commerce, Economic Development and Small Business
  • Crime Victims, Crime and Correction
  • The Senate Select Committee on Science, Technology, Incubation and Entrepreneurship

Cyber crime is becoming a global threat, with countries like England saying it is an even greater threat than Nuclear war.

The hearing will be held on Monday, November 18, at the Griffiss Institute in Rome. The hearing is open to the public.
