Ohio Lawmakers Vote to Set up a Cyber Reserve to Fight, Prevent Attacks

The team would protect against critical infrastructure, government systems attacks

Civilian volunteers who are experts in computers and information technology would be part of a new ‘cyber reserve’ to fight and prevent hacks against government systems, under a bill that passed the Ohio House on Wednesday.

Lawmakers voted 90-0 in favor of Senate Bill 52, which would create the Ohio Cyber Reserve under the command of the Adjutant General. The team of experts would protect against attacks on critical infrastructure and government systems.

Reservists would be paid while on state active duty and volunteer for training. They could not be called up for national military service.
