2021 National Survey of Local Government Cybersecurity and Cloud Initiatives

The survey analysis confirms that there are a wide variety of management and policy issues that are impacting the Cybersecurity posture for many local governments:

  • Engaging leadership on Cybersecurity remains a vexing issue for many IT organizations
  • While we are seeing an uptick in budgeting for Cybersecurity programming, for some thanks to federal stimulus support, a majority of IT executives feel their funding for cyber is still inadequate
  • Cyber insurance rates are rising (and coverage limits are declining)
  • The number of organizations that have implemented policies to better manage mobile devices have increased from last year
  • IT executives feel a high level of satisfaction when it comes to the security protocols implemented by the service providers of their networks
