Baltimore city council forms committee to examine ransomware attack response

Some $2.3 million in unused funds from a $19.1 million federal grant for election cybersecurity for the 2018 election cycle is being rerouted back to counties that failed to spend the money ahead of that election. And the Legislature included $2.8 million toward cybersecurity efforts for the budget year that begins July 1.
