Scott White (Chap. 3, this volume) examines both municipal cyber security infrastructure and the threats facing municipalities. Cyber-attacks include the unintentional or unauthorized access, use, manipulation, interruption or destruction of electronic information and/or the electronic and physical infrastructure used to process, communicate, and store that information. Cyber-attackers can disrupt the electronic controls of power grids, water treatment plants, and telecommunications networks and can interfere with the production and delivery of basic goods and services provided by municipal governments.

They may be internal or external to the organization and they may be known or unknown to the organization itself. When considering threats it is often useful to group the threat sources. In the case of people-related threats a non-exhaustive list could be: • • • • • Employees Customers Vendors Former Employees Black-hat hackers2 For people-based threat sources, groupings can be made according to criteria such as asset access, skills of the threat source, and motivation of the threat source. For example, an organization may determine that the threats it faces from general administrative staff are distinct from those faced from IT staff (due to different forms of access to assets and varying skill sets), in which case it may choose to further divide the “Employees” group into “General Employees” and “IT Employees”.
