Local and regional governments play a special role in public life. They perform, on their own behalf and responsibility, certain tasks commissioned by the State by way of legal Acts. The objective of the local and regional governments’ existence is to meet the collective requirements of their respective communities. Meeting the needs of residents also requires activities in the field of telecommunications, including support for the development of telecommunications services and networks. However, such development must be monitored. The role of local and regional governments, on the one hand, is to support this development, and, on the other, to protect the users of telecommunications services and networks from threats. Cybersecurity must therefore occupy the right place in the catalogue of local and regional governments’ tasks; it cannot be marginalised, as cyberthreats are real, and can result in substantial damage that is not only virtual.
