Due to recent threats of cyber attacks targeted towards governments within the United States the Maine Municipal Association is providing the attached document from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security – Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency. This document outlines the threat and references mitigation techniques to harden a network and hopefully lessen he likelihood of compromise. Members should forward this document to their technical staff for review and remediation. Please pay attention the mitigation steps listed on page 3 of the document. Members should also warn internal staff of the increased risk and adopt a heightened awareness during this time.
We have been notified this week that several members have had their phone systems hacked recently. If you use a VOIP phone system the attached document should also be sent to you phone system provider.
