Report: some small cities have surprisingly high number of exposed devices
Trend Micro this morning released a report about the exposed cyberassets in the top U.S. cities and most critical industry segments — and in many cases, it was the smaller municipalities that had the largest number of problems.
“Larger cities had fewer systems being exposed,” said Ed Cabrera, chief cybersecurity officer at Trend Micro.
Houston, for example, had 3,900,208 exposed devices, compared with 1,031,325 in New York City, even though New York has nearly four times as many people.
But many of the cities with the highest numbers of exposed devices were even smaller. Sometimes, much, much smaller.
