In 2020, local governments faced major cyber threats like phishing, brute force attacks, and denial-of-service attacks. The main reasons for these attacks were ransom demands, stealing money or personal data, and hacktivism.

To counter these threats, many started spending more on cybersecurity. They trained their employees to be aware of cyber dangers and introduced multi-factor authentication. Still, many aren’t doing enough for protection.

To improve in 2023, organizations should:

Use multiple security tools.
Update software regularly.
Prepare a plan for cyberattacks.
Educate staff about cyber risks, including strong passwords and avoiding suspicious emails.
