It’s Just Results
County & City Security Services

County and City governments have a growing need for security services and It’s Just Results can provide a range of services to augment your current internal capabilities. It’s Just Results also understands that local governments are working in increasingly complex regulatory environments. Our approach to security is based on applying best practices and regulatory frameworks; such as the National Institute of Standards (NIST) Cyber Security Framework (CSF), the Center For Internet Security (CIS) 20 controls, and NIST SP 800-53.

It’s Just Results
Incidents hit local government

When, not if, a security incident hits a county, city or township it can halt many services. Without these local services the public can’t make payments and businesses can’t do their jobs because information is not available to them such as house taxes used by realtors. Everything comes to a standstill and your I.T. staff is left scrambling trying to recover and get business back to normal.

In 2019 alone, there have been many incidents that have hit local governments. Baltimore city computers got hit with ransomware in May and was told to pay $76,000 or risk losing their data. In June several Florida cities paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to hackers to decrypt the files that they encrypted. Other states include Texas, Michigan, Ohio, New York and Georgia were hit with ransomware, this is just what we are seeing from larger local governments that are reporting, we are sure this is happening to smaller governments as well.


The first step

Our team of security advisors can help you by first working with you to administer a security assessment that will provide a clear picture of your current security efforts and provide a guide to develop priorities for what you should be doing next. We work collaboratively with leadership and your IT and security team and put together a roadmap for hardening your network and create plans that your local government can follow.

We will draw from a number of best practices and regulatory frameworks; such as the National Institute of Standards (NIST) Cyber Security Framework (CSF), the Center For Internet Security (CIS) 20 controls, and NIST SP 800-53, PCI, HIPPA, or LEIN.

  • Governance & Risk Management

    Is security decision making established for executives and on the executive meeting agenda? Are policies documented and communicated? Is staff trained?

    How current is you hardware and software inventory? Do you know what assets are part of your infrastructure? Have you established baseline configurations and keep these up to date?

  • Incident Response

    Have you built an incident response capability? Have you tested it? Can you respond in hours, not weeks or months?

  • User Identification and Authentication

    Have you identified and verified your users? Have you established the authentication mechanisms and integrated user management with devices, data, applications?

  • Vendor Flow Down

    Have your vendors been evaluated? Do you have vendor controls in place and active?

  • Zero Trust

    Are you verifying users? Are you validating devices? Are you, limiting access of privileged users? Are you applying machine learning to improve authentication processes?
