The current threat landscape demonstrates that local governments continue to be a target of threat actors. Ransomware continues to plague local governments. Local governments have traditionally not invested in cybersecurity coupled with COVID-19 is decreasing revenue and the fact that cyber risk continues unabated places local governments at higher risk. Solution: local governments and organizations are increasingly looking to outsource cybersecurity operations. There are two different cybersecurity services local governments can take advantage. Two prime areas for outsourcing is the Security Operations Center (SOC) (SOC-as-a-Service) and Executive cybersecurity management (CISO-as-a-Service).
