ORANGE, Calif. (PRWEB) February 13, 2019
360Civic, an Orange County based company that provides web development and technology services to public sector entities, has published a free whitepaper that addresses the challenge of ransomware.
Ransomware and Municipal Websites: A Prevention and Protection Strategy explains what ransomware is, how it works, and why it so frequently targets websites connected to state and local government.
The document, which is available for free on the company’s website, also offers specific steps that can be taken to reduce the likelihood of a ransomware attack.
“We created this whitepaper for public officials, communication officers, online security personnel and managers responsible for public sector and municipal websites,” said 360Civic CEO Bridget DiRico. “Being informed is the best way to be prepared.”
The threat of ransomware has reached epidemic proportions, as evidenced by the number of successful attacks perpetrated in 2018 alone. Many experts predict that 2019 may be even worse.
“Anyone connected with a public sector or government website should be aware of this issue,” DiRico stressed. “An attack can come from several different points of entry. We created this whitepaper to help public sector entities understand how ransomware can infect their systems, and what can be done to keep it out.”

School districts, utilities, and municipal, state and federal government departments have requirements different from those in the private sector. However, they share one common aspect – the desire for projects to be completed on time and on budget through a company that is easy to work with before, during and after the job is done. 360Civic approaches every project with these objectives in mind, and our success is exemplified by the short and long-term contracts we have fulfilled with state and federal entities, school districts and superior courts.
