Cybersecurity experts say hackers target local governments daily — even hourly — which leaves many scrambling to respond and protect sensitive information.
“Every system out there is vulnerable,” said Tim Lorello, CEO of SecuLore Solutions, a Maryland-based company that helps local governments combat cyberattacks.
The startup has clients in eight states but tracks cyber incidents around the country.
“We’re up to 204 incidents that we’ve tracked across 46 states,” Lorello said.
Hackers hijacked 123 of Washington, D.C.’s police surveillance cameras just days before the 2017 inauguration. Authorities are trying to extradite two Romanians accused in that attack.
