Michigan Leading The Effort Against Cyber Attacks

State Senator John Proos says dangerous cyber attacks are happening on a daily basis. State experts told lawmakers this week Michigan leads the effort in protecting people and infrastructur.


Officials says 2.5-million attempted attacks were reported on state web browsers in 2013 alone. Attacks also routinely targeted energy and communications infrastructure. Experts say a firm set up a fake water company as bait to check out the level of cyber-attacks. Within 18 hours they reported their first attack. After 28 days they had 30 attacks from 14 countries.
