Protecting Your Most Important Asset—Your Data
Cybersecurity Threats to State and Local Governments Are At an All-Time High
Ever-evolving cyberattacks targeting state and local government entities continue to increase year over year, and it’s obvious why. Several factors can make your municipality, village, county, or state more vulnerable to a data breach:
End User TrainingAs phishing, ransomware, and other types of breaches continue to become more prevalent, it's up to the institution to keep all of its end users aware on how to avoid becoming victim to these attacks. Implementing a comprehensive and ongoing information security awareness program is critical.
Sensitive InformationGovernment organizations hold multitudes of sensitive personal and financial information, making them the ideal target for hackers with malicious intent.
Human ErrorStaff turnover, insufficient training, and large workloads mean that cybersecurity might not always be on the minds of your organization's employees, making them more likely to fall victim to an attack.
Third-Party AccessRegulating the use of your network for outside official bodies or communities (such as social workers, councils, consortiums) can be challenging. The more devices accessible to your network, the larger your cybersecurity scope.
Outdated TechnologyAppropriating funds in your tight budget to continuously upgrade office technology is not a feasible solution, but working with outdated hardware and software increases your risk.
HotdeskingSimilarly to outdated tech, your office might be sharing equipment or software accounts between employees. This flexibilty could leave files more vulnerable to being accessed by unauthorized users.
