The Ohio Attorney General’s Office launched the CyberOhio
initiative in 2016. Its primary aim is to help Ohio’s businesses fight
back against cyber-attacks.
One of the main components of the CyberOhio initiative is

they can learn more about cybersecurity.
CyberInspire is a free all day workshop geared particularly
toward female students in grades 6-8. During the event, students will
dive head-first into the exciting world of cybersecurity. Participants will be
split up into four groups and rotate through four one-hour sessions. Each
session will consist of a game or activity that will expose them to basic
computer security concepts. Topics include computer safety, code building and
