"State and local governments’ IT infrastructure is currently in a state of what we would call transformative change...making information technology now a primary medium for citizens to interact with their local government," explains Claire Zaboeva, an expert in identifying and assessing cyber-based threats for IBM X-Force IRIS. For all the benefits these changes bring, there's a flip side: there are now more vectors for threat actors to conduct malicious activities within government infrastructures.  Why are threat actors targeting state and local governments and how can states protect public infrastructure? Melissa Frydrych, who researches cyber threat intelligence for IBM X-Force IRIS, joins Zaboeva in a conversation about the kinds of preventative measures states are taking to protect everything from citizens to utilities to elections.  For more security stories and to learn more about the research covered in this episode, visit or follow IBM Security on Twitter and LinkedIn.
