Some HPPR States Extremely Vulnerable To Cyberattacks


Cybersecurity has increasingly become a problem in America, and a new study shows that some states in the HPPR listening area are particularly vulnerable to cyberattacks.

WalletHub compared all 50 states and the District of Columbia across 15 key metrics, using key indicators ranging from per capita identity theft complaints to the average loss amount due to fraud.

The results show that Oklahoma and Kansas are ranked near the very bottom when it comes to protecting citizens from cyberfraud. Kansas is ranked at number 46, while Oklahoma is ranked at number 47.

Nebraska didn’t fair much better falling at number 39. Colorado landed at number 24. And, at number eight, Texas was the only HPPR state to make the top 10.

The District of Columbia was shown to have the best cybersecurity protections, while Kentucky was shown to have the worst.
