Aurora, IL is building a new comprehensive cybersecurity plan with Data Defenders LLC

Aurora, IL comprehensive cybersecurity plan


The City of Aurora is building a new cybersecurity plan that could become a model for municipalities across the country. The Aurora City Council is doubling its contract with Data Defenders LLC, a Chicago-based computer security firm, to $3.2 million in order to implement continuous surveillance of the city's Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition infrastructure. The comprehensive plan would guarantee the city spends less time and money fixing its systems in the event of a cyberattack.
