Description: Join us for a Cyber Security Training Workshop: Cyber Risk Assessment & Threat Management for Government Entities on Tuesday, June 25, 2019.

Incidents of malevolent and sophisticated cyber attacks – ransomware, phishing scams, network and organizational destruction and shutdowns – are rapidly escalating, and laws concerning cyber threat management are rapidly changing across all industry sectors. Having protocols to address threat prevention, recovery and ongoing protection are necessary for any entity using technology today. This includes all levels and types of government entities and public agencies – federal, state, county, local – which are increasingly targeted and affected by cyber criminals. It’s no longer a recommendation but a requirement to continually maintain and strengthen internal controls and to have formal cyber threat policies in place.

  • the latest major cyber incidents perpetrated against government entities across the U.S.,
