SAN ANTONIO - District 23 Congressman Will Hurd is emphasizing the importance of cyber security during his State of the District Address Wednesday.
- FBI: 'Ransomware' virus infecting computers, seizing data
- UTSA's cyber security program ranked best in nation
Hurd said cyber security is one of the most pressing issues in the country right now.
“It’s if you're sharing something that risks to your enterprise, that's (going to) have an impact to your bottom line if it gets out,” said Hurd. “The federal government needs to be able to protect that."
Hurd also spoke about the threat from ISIS, calling it a clear and present danger to the U.S.
He said choosing whether to support President Barack Obama in sending military force to counter that threat will be one of the most important decisions he will make while in office.
