CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - A new bill advancing in the Iowa legislature would address cyber security in the state.

It would create a cyber security unit. This group would monitor, manage, coordinate and report incidents happening within Iowa.

A subcommittee passed the bill yesterday.

This follows several cyber attacks targeting Iowa schools in recent months. This includes Cedar Rapids and Linn-Mar schools. The latest incident targeted Iowa’s largest school district in Des Moines.
