More ways to #BeCyberSmart for the finance and legal departments of local governments

Aug 14, 2019

Cybersecurity is a very real challenge local governments face. The subject is complex, though, and it can be hard to understand what your role is in keeping your organization safe from threats.

The Center for Government Innovation has developed two new resources specifically for finance and legal staff at local governments. Staff in these departments play an important role in cybersecurity, and these resources provide understandable and actionable guidance and relevant information.

Each resource consists of three main areas of cybersecurity emphasis and will help you develop an understanding that will help you begin to grapple with this challenging issue. You can see the Legal and Compliance document and the Finance and Administration document on our #BeCyberSmart webpage.

Also available on this page: resources for staff in leadership positions and Human Resource professionals in local governments, plus a bonus roundup of the top three cybersecurity responsibilities for each department of a local government.

We will continue to ask your opinion and partner with you as we work to develop more about how you can #BeCyberSmart. Questions or comments on what we've produced? Drop us a line at
