Virtual Event: Mitigating Cyber Security Risks in Local Government
Enhancing Local Cyber Resilience by Building a Robust Cyber Security Plan and Framework
Start: 9:00am PT / 12:00pm ET
In the urgency to adapt to a virtual world, local municipalities are facing cyber security risks which threatens to drain funds, topple budgetary assumptions and leave communities without the services they have come to rely on. Cyber criminals also know that a successful cyber-attack on a local government will have an outsized impact, and that can increase the odds of a payout.
As the private industry beefs up security, hackers are now increasingly changing their tactics and targeting local governments. This has prompted many municipalities to begin upgrading their legacy IT systems and increasing their cyber security knowledge. However, is that enough? Cyber criminals are well aware that local government organizations often lack the resources to fully protect themselves from emerging threats.
Public Sector Network’s Mitigating Cyber Security Risks in Local Government Virtual Event will equip attendees with new strategies and processes to manage these ever-growing cyber security risks.
