Cities protect sensitive data that’s valuable to cybercriminals. The personal information of citizens, criminals, and forensic reports, and access bank accounts are primary targets for districts across America.
Without proper firewalls and response systems, smart cities are at risk of being hacked. Hackers can use ransomware to hold city operations for ransom or to threaten public safety.
Cyber terrorists know that small businesses and smaller government agencies lack the resources and technology to protect themselves from being breached. So municipalities are more at risk of a cyber attack than larger, more structured bodies of government.
Tell cities about cybersecurity threats by tracking their city council agenda and initiating the conversation.
