10 Key Cyber Exposures for Counties  Many organizations will collect/ store/share VAST private data ! More data often collected than needed Data often stored for too long (no records retention limits)  Mishaps (malicious & mistakes) in safeguarding personal info such as: Health Records (Jails, Health Departments, Social Services, Mental Health) Financial Transactions  Vendors will have breaches, very common!  Lost Laptops: Left unencrypted with lots of personal info!  Online based County Services: Websites are very porous & need constant care (hardening & patching).  Bad guys still rely on the prevalence of human error unchanged default settings missing patches wide open laptop customer records (paper) improperly disposed guessable access Computer and internet-based services mean: “95% of all network intrusions could be avoided by keeping systems up-to-date” (CERT) 10

11 Cyber Liability – Recent Claims September 19, 201411 (June 2014) After an NBC 6 Investigation reported a data breach among Miami-Dade County workers last week, officials have started notifying employees about a massive data breach that is putting the identities of the workers at risk. Sources told the Team 6 investigators the data breach affected the identities and personal information of hundreds of government workers. Whoever is responsible for the breach is using the information to file fake unemployment claims and even open up credit cards. (May 2014) Hackers breached Wayne County’s payroll processor, potentially gaining access to hundreds of government employees’ Social Security numbers, home addresses and bank account information. The County Chief Clerk confirmed the county was notified Tuesday that Paytime Inc. of Mechanicsburg discovered on April 30 that records of multiple clients were accessed by online hackers (March 2014) Skagit County was penalized $215,000 in HIPPA violations by the Department of Health and Human Services for inadvertently putting protected health information (PHI) on a public server. The data breach involved 1,581 local patient’s health information, including the testing and treatment of infectious diseases. This case marks the first HIPPA settlement with a county government. (January 2014) The North East King County Regional Public Safety Communication Agency (NORCOM) has announced it is investigating the security breach of a server that stored records of an estimated 6,000 medical responses for Duvall Fire District 45, Skykomish Fire Department and Snoqualmie Pass Fire & Rescue (Fire District 51). "We discovered very recently that a computer had been hacked by a hacker who had basically broke down a password... a low level password to one of our stand-alone computers," said Tom Orr, Exec. Director of NORCOM. Two recent CRL Claims
