The resource function is essential to NYC3's ability to defendCity systems from cyber threat including direct support of life safety, revenue generating, and COVID response operations. The rapid shift to telework supported the acquisition of 300k+ new City-owned devices that facilitate remote access and remote learning; these have significantly expanded the City's attack surface. The resource will contribute to NYC3's ability to issue timely vulnerability notifications and prioritized system patching info. Without timely vulnerability notification, the City cannot effectively adjust its defensive controls resulting in increased likelihood of cyber events that may require costly remediation efforts.
