City Enhances Cyber Security
SAVANNAH, GA (September 27, 2018) — Today Savannah City Council approved the purchase of cyber- security services to enhance protection against potential future cyber-attacks. The additional services purchased provide multiple layers of solutions that will allow for more effective protection of the City’s network.
Expanded services include:
“There is no one solution or product that will provide 100% security protection, therefore multiple solutions must be employed to provide a robust security platform,” said Information Technology Director Cam Mathis. “In this current landscape of ever-changing threats and vectors, it is imperative to employ multiple solutions that will provide “layers” of protection to increase likelihood of preventing successful attacks.”
Constant review and evaluation of the enhancements is scheduled to ensure the expanded services remain up to date and effective for the evolving world of cyber threats. The new cyber-security services is part of the City’s Savannah Forward strategic plan #GoodGovernment
