State and Local Government

Preventing Cyber Attacks on Government Information

A single virus-infected email; one unauthorized network access; a solitary line of unsecure code within an application or the individual loss of a laptop with unencrypted data is all it takes to put national secrets and municipal services at risk. Preventing cyber attacks begins with broad cyber risk management strategies designed around specific controls vulnerabilities.

Increased scrutiny and the exposure of data breaches by some state and local governments have made IT security policies a top priority for government and public sector organizations at every level.
