CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP)– Malicious cyber attacks against governments and big corporations continue to rise and the advanced techniques being used by criminals make repairing the damage difficult.

Even a small municipality may have hundreds of internet-connected systems. A security breach on a single device within a system can compromise operations, and make sensitive and confidential information open to theft.

The 22News I-Team looked into how vulnerable larger computer systems are against these attacks and what steps municipalities and businesses are taking to protect themselves against cyber criminals.
