  5. County Refusing to use FireEye? Things to think about. If your county is breached and SVRS is affected, what is your response to the media? If your county is breached, it can be costly. According to securityintelligence.com, a breach to a government agency costs around $2M. When the city of Baltimore was breached, it cost 18.2M. Recovery efforts took months and services for water billing, property taxes, parking tickets, email, phones all disrupted.
