CyberFirst for Public Entities
Exposed city records can be costly
The first time it happened, you thought you did all the right things – antivirus software, policies, protocols and employee training. Now it has happened again. A city employee opened an email attachment and malicious code infiltrated the city's network, damaging thousands of electronic records.

Because your municipality uses software to manage city services, such as park and recreation programs and utilities, you were concerned. You hired a computer forensic investigator, who confirmed that data about your residents and your city employees had been compromised – names, addresses, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, even credit card and bank account numbers.

The high cost of a data breach
According to the NetDiligence® Data Breach Cost Calculator*, the city’s estimated costs for this event could be:
$   291,000  Incident investigation
$   125,000  Electronic data restoration expense
$   504,000  Citizen notifications/crisis management
$   550,000  Fines and penalties
$1,470,000  Estimated total cost to the city
