Re: Can't be bothered to spend money on IT
I have to admit that I can't fully understand what's going on.
Local government, if targeted by hackers, could create serious disruption. People's housing benefit not getting paid, tax not collected (and thus not forwarded to other bodies) civil services impacted... and yet the rate of councils being attacked seems minimal, apart from one or two high profile over the years. I would have thought they would be much more likely to be the target of state attacks.
And yet here we are, with international companies, with oodles more resources... getting hit. What are small local councils getting right, that international companies are getting wrong?
Where I used to work, around 400 employees only a fraction of which were in I.T., we had a few close calls but didn't get taken out like some of these other companies.
