Cybersecurity for municipalities

Canadian municipalities have unique cybersecurity concerns and needs

Municipalities typically support a diverse group of geographically dispersed users over corporate and public networks. They are also digitizing and integrating more services and IoT projects. This combination makes them a high-profile target for cybercrime.
