Digital transformation and global trends in Smart City development have brought on serious security challenges in governing smart data assets. The implementation of two-way communication between cities and citizens requires secure communication channels and efficient data management. Fast development of information communication technologies (ICT) demands for continues investments in new security options. In this paper, the author examined the efficiency of implemented security levels in local government units (LGUs) through Data Envelopment Analysis. The Data Envelopment Analysis enables benchmarking LGUs according to obtained results. The efficient LG units were further examined and were ranked using super-efficiency analysis. The inefficient LGUs can use the obtained results to improve their performance using projections and thus reach the efficiency frontier.
