Statistic on IT security: Hessian municipalities

Municipalities are increasingly becoming victims of cyberattacks. The responsible administrators do their best to protect the systems and data. But due to a lack of time, personnel and financial capacities, they are in many cases outgunned by the technologically highly equipped hackers. Our statistics on the IT security situation of 422 municipalities in Hesse, which can be viewed externally, show just how precarious the situation is. The data determined as part of the study is based on automatically collected, publicly accessible information. This means that no invasive vulnerability scans were carried out and no access barriers were overcome.

With the statistics, we want to draw attention and offer our help to IT managers. The municipalities can contact us at any time for a free insight into their own security situation.
