Cybersecurity Update – Lessons Learned from the Trenches

March 29, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Come join us for an interactive discussion from our cyber breach coach Matt Meade.  If you’ve had a recent cyber event, then you’ll know Matt’s name.  If you haven’t Matt is the one who will assist you thru the process.

It seems that almost every day we hear reports of another data breach impacting local government. Data breaches are often the result of an escalating series of non-technical failures which include lack of preparation, lack of adequate employee training designed to increase awareness of risky behavior and incomplete or non-existent evaluations and protections involving vendors and other third parties who receive valuable data from the organization. Through a series of hypothetical incidents attendees will work through the twists and turns of a data security incident. This is a practical and interactive session, participants will: (1) receive tips for increasing organizational awareness of cybersecurity risks; (2) examine the challenges of managing cybersecurity risks; and (3) learn about best practices to create a culture of cyber awareness.

Participate in interactive scenarios to check your knowledge and understanding. Bring your questions! We will wrap up with a live Q&A session.
