Pennsylvania has been ranked 2nd in the nation for being most at risk of a cyberattack.

The new national study on www.security.org looked at information from the FBI cyberattack data, reports to the National Governor’s Association for spending on cybersecurity and how safe each state’s election systems are.
It found the number of cyberattacks in our state has increased more than 25 percent per 100 thousand people in the last year.
No state spending on cybersecurity was reported, and our election system security also ranked low, giving a measured risk level of 135.
Hawaii took the top spot with a measured risk of 154.
Rhode island is least likely, with a measured risk of only 36.
