Las Vegas is once again America’s most cyber insecure city according to a new report from Coronet. For the second year in a row, Las Vegas tops the list followed by Houston and New York City. Conversely, Salt Lake City, St. Louis and Seattle-Tacoma ranked as the least vulnerable cities to cyberattack.
Coronet’s findings from a comprehensive 12-month study detail how vulnerable network, device, cloud app and email threats, impact small and mid-sized businesses within the top 50 metro areas in the U.S. As a follow up to its inaugural 2018 Cybersecurity in the City report, Coronet collected and analyzed original data from over 93 million security events in the top 50 U.S. metropolitan regions to generate a composite “Threat Index” score which served as the basis for this year’s rankings.
The report lists America’s most cyber insecure cities as:
West Palm Beach-Ft. Pierce
And America’s least vulnerable cities as:
Salt Lake City
To generate this report, Coronet collected and analyzed data from one million endpoints spanning all operating systems, 24 million networks (public and private), 320,000 SaaS accounts (Dropbox, Box, Slack and Salesforce), and 270,000 Gmail and Office 365 email accounts.
