Municipalities are a cybercriminal’s dream. They’re packed full of confidential information on residents and employees, offering a digital buffet of social security numbers, banking information, addresses, and more. Plus, a well-placed piece of malware in a municipal system can cause ultimate chaos - think failing traffic lights, downed payment systems, and a total disruption of city services.
Many companies have an incident response plan that may look great on paper but they have not tested the execution. Key stakeholders must agree on the strategy, evolve it over time and be able to implement it confidently during an incident.
If 2017 has shown us anything, it’s that even major organizations can come to a grinding halt due to cyber security attacks.
This message probably won’t come as a surprise to many businesses. After all, several big-name brands have suffered embarrassing data breaches in recent years, causing significant financial and reputational damage.
