It is no longer a question of “IF” a cyber-attack will happen,
but “WHEN.” As the world’s fifh-largest economy, California’s
cities have unique requirements and rules that are different
from other municipalities in America. There are currently
multiple nation-states, cybercriminals, and hacktivists that
actively pursue cyber harm to California.
The FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) 2019 report
states that the “IC3 received a total of 467,361 complaints
with reported losses exceeding $3.5 billion. For the last
several years, the State of California has ranked number one
with a reported 50,132 victims in 2019. The most prevalent
crime types reported were Phishing/Vishing/Smishing/
Pharming, Non-Payment/Non-Delivery, Extortion, and
Personal Data Breach.
Cyber is no longer just a “tech thing.” All aspects of every
California community must be aware of cybersecurity and its
impact on government, education, law enforcement,
economy, and citizens. Whether you are new to
