FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21ALIVE) --- Where do you turn first for protection from cyber criminals targeting you for identity theft?

It's a subject that is timely here in Fort Wayne, one day after news that patients of Lutheran Health Network had personal information stolen in a major cyber attack impacting people in 29 states.

Lutheran officials are suggesting that "Uncle Sam" should play the key role in warding off future cyber attacks of this nature.
