Indeed, as a<br>\npotential channel of accessing personal information, these<br>\nspecialized applications also expose the public sector to new risks.<br>\nThe cybersecurity landscape is changing, and Local Public<br>\nAdministrations are rapidly becoming an attractive target for<br>\ncybercriminals, who might access some sets of personal data or<br>\ngain control over smartly operated city resources through LPAs<br>\ninfrastructures. The consequences of cyber-threats have the<br>\npotential to be considerable causing business interruptions, data<br>\nlosses, and thefts of intellectual property, significantly impacting<br>\nboth individuals and organizations.
