New York Offers Free Cybersecurity Tools to Public to Deter Hackers (Reuters)


New York City will offer free cyber security tools to the public as part of a new effort to improve online safety, a week after Atlanta was hit with a ransomware attack that knocked some municipal systems offline.

The program, dubbed NYC Secure, will launch a free smartphone protection app to warn users when suspicious activity is detected on their devices, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio announced at a news conference.
