U.S. warns businesses of threat of cyberattacks

"Dr. Richard Forno, assistant director of the UMBC Center for Cybersecurity, said Maryland may be a likely target of cyber warfare in the future.

“Maryland has always been the epicenter of cybersecurity,” said Forno.

The state houses the headquarters for many businesses that provide services to the federal government as well as federal agencies.

Forno added that cyberattacks are more convenient and not as devastating as physical attacks, but there's still serious fall out."
