Hundreds of cyber security professionals will attend a conference in Detroit Monday.

Rob Davenport is the state of Michigan’s chief technology officer. 

He says there’s been an increase in hacking by organized crime and other nations targeting big business and government computers.

He says small and medium size businesses are also victims.

“Although they are attacked probably less frequently, they tend to be in a relatively weaker position to respond and defend themselves,” says Davenport.

Davenport says this week’s cyber security summit will highlight new ways to protect against hackers.
