ThreatBlockr State and Local SLED Datasheet
Cyber attacks against state, local, and tribal governments have been dramatically increasing year over year. In 2019 alone, there were 140 ransomware attacks – an average of 3 per day, targeting public, state, and local government. Unfortunately, with the 2020 pandemic and the shift to remote work, these attacks have surged. Almost daily we hear of another Ransomware attack crippling a city 911 system, or freezing thousands of government computers and disrupting everything from real estate sales to water bill payments. Even with help from federal authorities, the cost to repair is astronomical.
