MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A summit on cyber threats will be held a week from Friday at Marquette University in Milwaukee.
The state's Homeland Security Council is hosting the event.
State and local government leaders will learn how they can protect their computers from cyber threats. The FBI will give its perspective on cyber criminals, and South Carolina officials will explain their response to a hacker who stole tax information from millions of residents and businesses.
Wisconsin's homeland security chief, Major General Don Dunbar, says the summit offers a chance to analyze the current environment in cyberspace -- and define the Badger State's role in responding to cyber emergencies.
