Cybersecurity remains a growing concern for federal, state and local government agencies. The threat level is exceptionally high for local governments that lack the resources and funds of state and federal agencies. An attack on government systems can compromise the data of employees and residents, place crucial files under ransom with the threat of deletion and hinder critical services.
In October 2016, a cyber attacker paralyzed 911 call centers in 12 states for over 12 hours. A 2016 ICMA survey of government CIOs found that 44% experienced attempted cyber attacks on their systems at least daily. Many agencies continue to see an increased volume of attacks.
