There are many moving parts to a functioning local government body. Every single employee and department contributes in some way to the overall function of one of these entities. One such department that many local governing bodies are beginning to quickly realize the importance of is their IT department. Cyber-attacks are on the rise and in 2020 40 percent of global ransomware attacks were targeted at municipal governments, with that number expected to rise drastically.
Well maintained and managed IT infrastructure can help lower overall costs, as well as increase cyber-security postures and prevent unnecessary spending related to cyber-security incidents. On the other hand, the lack of an organized and trained IT department can leave a government body target to hackers and phishers. As technology becomes more and more prevalent in the workplace and government agencies become more digitally connected these attacks will become more frequent and more sophisticated.
