Real-time Insights for Improving Cyber Resilience and Data Protection

State and local governments are key targets for cyber adversaries and the frequency of attacks is accelerating. According to the FBI, local government entities within the government facilities sector (GFS) represented the second most targeted group. Ransomware attacks on local governments may result not only in the disruption of services, but also in the compromise of data, and can have significant impact on local communities.

Many state and local government agencies depend on legacy data systems that lack resilience to cyberattacks. These systems often grapple with resource and budget limitations that make both defending against and remediating ransomware attacks more difficult. They rely on outdated technologies in an environment where the threat surface grows daily!

At the same time, smart city initiatives like intelligent information and communication technology (ICT) and Internet of Things (IoT) platforms help reduce traffic congestion, energy and water consumption, crime, and improve services your city provides. With an increase in OT/IOT devices, many public sector organizations experience a “visibility gap” where IT and security leaders can’t see all the vulnerable assets within their environment. The public sector can no longer depend on conventional perimeter-based defenses to protect critical systems and data.

Fortunately The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act provides $1 Billion to State and Local Governments to strengthen their cybersecurity posture and provide much needed assistance for stakeholders outside the U.S. Federal Government.
