- New Report: What Cities Should Know About Cybersecurity - National League of Cities, October 16, 2019
The National League of Cities released a 36-page report, “Protecting Our Data: What Cities Should Know About Cybersecurity." NLC wrote this report for local elected and appointed officials, especially those who may not have a background in cybersecurity or network management. It was completed in collaboration with the Public Technology Institute. The guide outlines 10 recommended first steps for city officials hoping to improve cybersecurity, includes case studies of local security breaches (including when NLC itself was hit by ransomware) and offers a checklist local IT directors can use to get started.
