Global cyberattacks are increasing at an alarming rate. For many public sector agencies, it is no longer a matter of if they will be targeted, but when and how often they will be attacked. A variety of bad actors, both domestic and international, specifically target states, municipalities, school districts, and institutions of higher education. These organizations are selected for the large volumes of sensitive data they collect and store on their constituents, students, and parents.
While tools are available to assist with detection, prevention and mitigation efforts, many agencies lack the financial resources to develop a robust cybersecurity apparatus. Fortunately, federal and state governments are making significant investments in assisting public sector agencies with their cybersecurity efforts.
