Local Governments, Global Threats: Top of Mind Cybersecurity Trends for State and Local Leaders in 2019

February 28, 2019

Gone are the days when random hackers or teenagers running code in their basements posed the greatest cybersecurity threats. Now, state and local governments are top targets of well-funded professional cyber criminals. Using various means to debilitate business processes, steal public records or data, and extort unprepared organizations for ransom, cases abound of governments being caught unprepared or ill-equipped to respond and recover from a cyberattack.
