Cyber Security for Wyoming
The Wyoming State Library and Wyoming CAN Committee have teamed up to offer free “cyber-in-a-box” educational programs to libraries.
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - According to 2019 reports, the FBI's Internet Crimes Complaint Center recorded more than $8.1 million in reported losses in Wyoming due to cybercrime.
A group Wyomingites formed a committee to help raise awareness protecting your network and information. The Cybersecurity Action Network is a volunteer committee, also known as (CAN), who said it ‘sits mission is to increase the state’s overall level of cyber-hygiene.
“If you have an awareness of tactics that scammers use and or the exact fraud, you are much less likely to lose money, and that’s what we want to do for Wyoming.”
As consumers enjoy the benefits of the digital age, The Wyoming State Library and Wyoming CAN Committee have teamed up to offer free “cyber-in-a-box” educational programs to libraries.
“It’s exciting that we have this, and we’re using the existing network of the library system that’s already in place, and a lot of people look to the library for that type of information.”
Being the Wyoming CAN group is a non-profit organization, the committee is currently looking for grant funding to build and implement the entire campaign.
