Has your organization assessed your risks and identified action steps you can take to implement a proper response and recovery from a cyber-attack?
As local government organizations grow more reliant on digital resources, the cybersecurity threat looms larger and larger each year. In a recent report published by PwC, Global Economic Crime Survey 2016, cybercrime has jumped “from 4th to 2nd place among the most-reported types of economic crime.” With hundreds of information technology systems and applications networked across a jurisdiction and connected to the internet, a cyber incident is likely. Threats abound, vulnerabilities exist, and in addition to being very costly, the impact can be a hazard to public safety.
Bring a team or attend individually to join with your colleagues in Decatur, GA on February 7th to discuss essential steps to better prepare and protect your organization. This community cybersecurity workshop is a one day event meant to help you better realize that no community, industry, or individual is immune to a cyber-attack. And most importantly it’s everyone’s responsibility.
Through case studies and real-world examples, a clear picture of the size and scope of the problem will be presented. Discussions will cover mitigation techniques including cyber-related vulnerability assessments, specific planning needs, and particular training recommendations. The workshop will include the following:
