Mayor Eric Garcetti is strengthening cybersecurity for L.A. businesses and residents with the launch of America’s first city-based Cyber Lab. The lab is a public-private partnership that will disseminate information and intelligence based on analysis of more than one billion security-related events and over four million attempted intrusions into City networks per day.
The Los Angeles Cyber Lab — formed in partnership with Cisco — builds on the Mayor’s second Executive Directive, which created a Cyber Intrusion Command Center to lead cybersecurity preparation and response across City departments. The lab will alert small and medium-sized business partners to attacks as they occur, and larger businesses can receive automated updates to their own cyber defense systems. There is no cost or obligation of membership.
Over time, the platform will evolve into a mutual exchange of threat information with private sector partners, further fortifying L.A.’s capacity to thwart cyber criminals. Businesses and residents can find more information at https://www.lacyberlab.org/.
