It’s time to rethink government’s cybersecurity priorities. Over sixty percent of state and local IT leaders estimate their high-value assets (HVAs) have been potentially compromised in the past 12 months, but fewer than half report their organization has made progress on foundational cyber hygiene steps. There is a widespread acceptance of dealing with a breach “when” it happens. “If” is no longer part of the conversation. But is there another way?
MeriTalk surveyed 150 state and local cybersecurity leaders to explore the possibilities of a world where governments don’t have to assume they have been breached – and what it would take to get there. Download this infographic for a synthesis of the research findings, including:
