WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will spend most of the week ahead focusing on identity theft, electronic privacy and other cyberspace issues.

The events are part of Obama's strategy of providing sneak peeks of the proposals he'll outline in his upcoming State of the Union address.

The White House says Obama will host an event in Washington on Monday to lay out the next steps in his plan to tackle identity theft and improve consumer and student privacy.

After meeting Tuesday with the top leaders in Congress, Obama will discuss cybersecurity during a visit to the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center.

On Wednesday, he'll head to Iowa to talk about making affordable, high-speed Internet more available nationwide.

Earlier this week, Obama announced programs to boost homeownership and access to higher education.
