MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Wisconsin’s Homeland Security Council is planning to host a summit on cyber threats in Milwaukee later this month. The agenda includes presentations on how state and local government agencies can protect themselves from 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 form tax filings on 3.8 million adults, nearly 2 million of their dependents and 700,000 businesses last year. Maj. General Don Dunbar, Wisconsin’s homeland security adviser, is leading the summit. He describes the summit as a chance to step back, analyze the current cyber environment and define the state’s role in emergency cyber responses. The summit is set for Oct. 11 at Marquette University.
