In this chapter the situation and the challenges on the cybersecurity issues of e-administration services and practice of Hungarian municipalities will be analysed. However, the cybersecurity of the municipal administration became an important part of the local decisionmaking and administration in Hungary, it has several challenges because of the fragmented Hungarian municipal system. The regulation on local cybersecurity issues focused on the development a horizontally integrated e-administration. Although the acts on this system have been passed in the last years, and the former restrictions of the electronic administration have been eliminated, but the practice of the Hungarian e-administration is partly different. The new, enhanced e-administration resulted new challenges, which was partly solved by the radical nationalisation and centralisation of the former municipally performed tasks. The municipal e-administration systems have been built mainly by the largest municipalities, but their operation could be further developed, and thus the municipal cybersecurity is a developing part of the Hungarian public administration tasks, as well.
