You can spray the wires with bitter apple. You can block access to them if they are behind furniture. They sell plastic casing that you can bundle the wires into.

Maggie used to chew wires, then one day I realized she was actually chewing the labels on the wires and the wire was just collateral damage. This made sense because Maggie was always chewing cardboard, post it notes, etc. So I removed all the labels and she never bothered the wires again. So that may be happening with your cat as well.

In the interim, sometimes wrapping foil around wires and cords stops them, sometimes it doesn't.

Silly cats! The things they do!
I went to Staples and got cord covers which worked.
I've also seen these online but haven't tried them.
