Recovering From a Cyberattack: Communication is Key for Counties

Cyberattacks on local government agencies are occurring with alarming frequency, and counties need to have a communications strategy in place when the inevitable happens.

Local agencies are a popular target for cyberattacks, since many have not established rigorous safeguards. Imagine what could happen if a cyberattacker seizes control of your data and systems, whether it’s theft and public release of information or a ransomware hostage situation. Resident/customer information, billing and payment systems, 911 dispatch, human resources and payroll records, legal documents, traffic controls, and countless others can go offline or become inaccessible in an instant.
