In recognition of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, NLC just released our newest guide, "Protecting Our Data: What Cities Should Know About Cybersecurity." NLC wrote this report for local elected and appointed officials, especially for those who may not have a background in cybersecurity or network management. It was completed in collaboration with the Public Technology Institute. Please feel free to share with anyone who may be interested.
The guide outlines ten recommended first steps for city officials hoping to improve cybersecurity, includes a few really interesting case studies of local security breaches (including the time NLC itself was hit by ransomware), and a checklist local IT directors can use to get started.
