Dolan advises counties and states that reach out to MS-ISAC to start with a single step: making sure systems are current.
As of July 14, support for Microsoft's Windows Server 2003 ended - a pressing concern for governments, Dolan said.
"We need to make sure that we're using equipment that's as up to date as possible," Dolan said.

"These are people who are trying to victimize us," Dolan said.
"This is affecting all aspects of our life.
