Recent municipal-level cybersecurity attacks (think: Baltimore, Laredo, New Orleans) have highlighted the vulnerability of government bodies to external attacks. In fact, one study found that 44 percent of local governments report being “under attack hourly or daily.”
The key to thwarting attacks at the onset is educating employees, since one simple mistake, i.e. one click on a contaminated link, could lead to a statewide infection. NINJIO worked with one Southwest city to train employees to detect and address cyberattacks, and drastically increase compliance with cybersecurity best practices.
In the following case study, we feature a client with 2,000 government employees, all of whom had access to NINJIO training. The city’s IT manager reported those “current on their NINJIO videos were less likely to fall for the PhishMe simulations” and “behavior/accidental issues by our employees were invariably caused by employees not current in their NINJIO content.”
