North Dakota’s chief information officer says as the state becomes more computerized, the threats of computer hacking grow along with it.
"Lots of people say, 'North Dakota -- we're small, and nobody's coming after us," CIO Shawn Riley said at a meeting of elected and appointed state department heads. "On average, we defend 7.3 million attacks a month. They're comin' after us."
Riley said bad actors are looking at the state both for its energy and its network.
