The report provides background information on cyber security threats to state and local governments. Chapter 3 includes recommendations related to access controls, server and network security, incident handling, policies and more that will be of particular interest to city governments.

What is IT in a Box?
Through Sophicity, KLC’s longtime IT consulting partner, KLC now offers a service, “IT in a Box”, which provides cities with state-of-the-art information technology tools supported by experienced, highly skilled IT professionals. For one monthly fee, a city will receive a website, data back up and offsite data storage, email, document management, Microsoft Office for desktops, server and desktop management, vendor management and Helpdesk support seven days a week. Unlike other IT providers, Sophicity's specialty is cities... that's what they know and what they do.
Prior to offering this service to all KLC members the cities of Morehead and Lyndon served as pilot cities. Each city was at a different place with its IT infrastructure and found significant benefit through the service. Fees are based on the number of employees and the size of the city’s technology infrastructure, making “IT in a Box” affordable for city budgets to suit the needs of our smallest to largest members.
