With cyber threats on the rise, a local nonprofit is tasked with taking down hackers targeting some government entities. The Center for Internet Security (CIS) works with 12,000 organizations – mostly state, local and territorial government agencies such as election boards – helping them thwart and address cyber threats.

While hackers have deployed the same type of threats against these agencies, their tactics have changed over the years, Senior Vice President of Operations and Security Services at CIS Josh Moulin explained.
