Have you been hacked or harassed via the Internet?

You're Invited to an Informational Briefing on Cybercrime

From Rep Kym Pine (R-Ewa)


In this era of the internet, we have been hearing more and more about internet hacking, identity theft and cyber attacks. Members of Congress, our state and national governments, private corporations and ordinary citizens are all being affected by this new frontier of criminal activity.

Recently, my own website and email were hacked into and meddled with. Sadly, numerous people have come to me since that incident with similar experiences. This is a widespread problem from which no one is guaranteed complete protection.

If you have been a victim of internet crime, I want to help.

Members of the State House of Representatives are holding an informational briefing on the topic of cybercrimes. The purpose of the informational briefing is to help members of the State Legislature better understand the depth and scope of this problem, its growing sophistication, and ways that existing state statutes should be strengthened.

  • Informational Briefing on Cybercrime
  • Tuesday, July 12
  • 10:00 a.m.
  • State Capitol, Room 309

These crimes affect a wide range of abuses, including financial damage, like identity theft or the exploitation of credit card information, to social or emotional damage, like the sad development of cyber bullying affecting our youth. If you have been affected by these crimes, your participation can help to protect your friends and family members from falling victim in the future.

We cannot allow criminals to continue using these avenues to hurt law-abiding citizens. To share your story, please contact my office at 586-9730 or email me at
