(KSL TV) As the war escalates in the Gulf, the threat of terrorist backlash here at home looms. There's some good news for Utahns though.

According to a research group, Utah is among 14 states that have managed to adopt adequate laws and safeguards against cyberattacks.

That means the state has acted in full compliance with orders by Congress to develop policies to protect key computer systems in case of an attack.

According to research, 14 states were listed in partial compliance; and 22 states were listed as taking little or no action against cyberthreats.
