Cybersecurity Readiness for

MUNICIPALITIES
Cyber Threats and State & Local Municipalities

Municipalities are not immune to cyber risks. In fact, many NJ Municipalities were targeted in September 2016 cyberattacks using email spoofing for fraudulent wire transfers. Government respondents in a 2015 Hewlitt Packard & Ponemon Institute survey cited a lack of skilled workers as a major deterrent to achieving a strong security posture. That’s where D2 Cybersecurity Training comes in. Our Cybersecurity Readiness Online Training provides your municipal employees with critical awareness education as an essential first step in reinforcing your cyber policies/guidelines and increasing vigilance towards future cyber threats. Training and educating your employees is the most cost-effective way to battle cybersecurity threats.

“Having the best security technology cannot help you unless you and your employees understand your roles and responsibilities in safeguarding sensitive data. It’s important to train employees and educate the public so that they are able to identify risks.” 
Michael J. Darcy, CAE, Executive Director
NJ State League of Municipalities; Sept. 2015
