Government Industry

Cybersecurity remains a growing concern for federal, state, and local government agencies. The threat level is especially high for local governments, who lack the resources and funds of larger 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 of 2016, a cyber attacker managed to paralyze 911 call centers in 12 states for more than 12 hours. In the most extreme cases, cyber attacks on government agencies can be a matter of life and death. A 2016 ICMA survey of government CIOs found that 44% of them experienced attempted cyber attacks to their systems at least daily. Many are seeing the volume of attacks increasing.
