A San Francisco Project with National Impact
Cities and towns serve as community hubs, connecting residents to organizations like food banks, homelessness services, and legal aid. These nonprofit partners, called community-based organizations (CBOs), provide critical resident services and handle sensitive data but may not have the same cybersecurity capabilities as traditional municipal vendors.
CLTC’s Public Interest Cybersecurity program is collaborating with the City of San Francisco to understand and assist Bay-area CBOs improve their cybersecurity defenses. We are embarking on an ambitious research program, including hosting a series of workshops to “share and learn” with CBO leaders and IT staff and proposing threat mitigations that can serve as a model for cities across the country.
