CLEVELAND (AP) - Cleveland area law enforcement agencies, businesses and institutions are forming a consortium to share information and to develop strategies for preventing and responding to the growing threat of cyberattacks.

Officials are holding a conference in Cleveland on Wednesday to talk about the new consortium and how it will help the region. Speakers will include FBI Director James Comey, a former deputy director with the National Security Agency, law enforcement officials and experts on cyberattacks and cybersecurity.

The conference will feature discussions about cyber preparations for the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland and the federal government’s efforts to combat cyberterrorism.

The conference also will include a simulated cyberattack on Cleveland’s critical business and government sectors.
