Today, as the world continues to reel from the massive ransomware cyberattack that hit companies around the globe, Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) visited the New York Stock Exchange Data Center in Mahwah and discussed cybersecurity with their data experts.

said Congressman Josh Gottheimer. “At the Stock Exchange today, we discussed their data protection and cybersecurity efforts. In Congress, I will continue to push for beefing up our nation’s cybersecurity practices and making sure that individual computer users and businesses of all sizes have the resources and knowledge to keep our country safe.”
