The State and Local Government Cybersecurity Checklist

Over the past few years, cybersecurity has become a top priority for state and local governments.  

The volume of local governments' data and citizens’ personal information to process has exploded, which makes it more challenging than ever to keep this data secure. 

Adding to this issue, cyberattacks against state and local governments have increased dramatically. In 2019 alone, there were over 100 ransomware attacks on public, state, and local governments, according to the threat intelligence firm Recorded Future. 

The average ransom payment in Q4 of 2019 rose 104% from the previous quarter.

With these factors in place, it can be tricky to devise sound strategies to deal with today’s growing and evolving threat landscape. That’s why Arctic Wolf has developed The State and Local Government Cybersecurity Checklist. We wanted to provide a step-by-step guide to help local governments develop a comprehensive strategy to protect systems that citizens rely on for critical information.  

Inside the checklist for State and Local Governments is the latest information on: 

  • Creating a security-conscious workforce.  
  • How to build an understanding of the threat landscape. 
  • The importance of analyzing, prioritizing, and managing vulnerabilities.  
  • Recent state level cybersecurity laws.  

With the State and Local Government Cybersecurity Checklist, learn how to build a stronger security posture with helpful advice, tips, and best practices.
