In 2016, the International City/County Management Association (ICMA), in partnership with the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC), conducted a survey to better understand local government
cybersecurity practices. The results of this survey provide insights into the cybersecurity issues faced by U.S. local governments, including what their capacities are, what kind of barriers they face, and what type
of support they have to implement cybersecurity programs.
This snapshot provides an overview of the Cybersecurity Survey results and includes quotes from interviews/ opinion piece that ICMA staff did on cybersecurity topic.
