It's a firm based out of New York.

Experts will look at county computers and address future protection plans.

"We have talked with retired FBI agents and talked about cyber theft and stuff like that. We've had meetings on the telephone with them, so there's a lot going on with that too," Brad Anderson, Vigo County Commissioner President said. 

County leaders also approved plans to renew cyber insurance.
