In any city government in Missouri, employees can be your biggest IT threat, and they might not even realize it. Government organizations already face countless cyber-threats, like data breaches, cyber-attacks, online viruses, and malicious e-mails. Microsoft's end-of-support on Windows 7 machines has also put city governments in danger of a cyber-attack. Despite all these outside threats, the real problem can come from the inside.

One of the biggest threats to your organization's security is simply a lack of awareness on the part of your employees. It comes down to this: your employees may not be aware of current threats or how to safely navigate emails and the web. They might not be aware when they connect to an unsecured WiFi network or if they’re using a firewall. There are a lot of variables.
