The government defines cybersecurity (according to ready.gov) as: “preventing, detecting and responding to cyberattacks that can have wide-ranging effects on the individual, organizations, the community, and at the national level. Cyberattacks are malicious attempts to access or damage a computer system. Cyberattacks can lead to loss of money, theft of personal information and damage to your reputation and safety.” Unfortunately, many divisions and offices of the government aren’t protected themselves (e.g., the City of Atlanta breach that occurred in March 2018). There have been MANY other compromises across the United States in water authorities, sewer authorities, cities, townships, counties and municipalities. Government agencies require specific levels of cyber reviews and subsequent modernization plans in order to fortify their boundaries and infrastructures.
