California Special Districts Association (CSDA) Partners with VC3 to Deliver Cybersecurity and Technology Services to Special Districts in California

COLUMBIA, S.C & SACRAMENTO, Calif.--()--The California Special Districts Association (CSDA) has partnered with VC3 to deliver cybersecurity and technology services to special districts in California.

VC3’s local government-focused cybersecurity and technology services are consistent with the CSDA's mission to promote good governance and improve core local services for all types of independent special districts in the state of California.

“Special districts have varying needs when it comes to information technology and cybersecurity, which is why we wanted to partner with a company that not only specializes in working with public agencies but also would have service options for both small and large special districts,” said Neil McCormick, Chief Executive Officer of CSDA. “VC3 is proven. They’ve dedicated 30 years to serving local government, and many state municipal leagues have selected them as an exclusive endorsed partner. Our members can trust VC3 to understand their specialized needs, offer them cost-effective technology and cybersecurity solutions, and keep them safe and secure while modernizing their IT environments. I’m excited about the potential and possibilities of this new partnership.”

VC3 provides local governments, including special districts, with essential technology services and solutions that secure and modernize a special district's IT for a fraction of the typical costs. For one monthly all-inclusive fee, special districts in California can choose from a variety of packages that include:
