Panel: Combating Cyber Attacks Within State and Local Governments
With the hybrid workforce here to stay, state and local governments are faced with the challenge of protecting critical data from a distance, oftentimes over networks and applications that are unsecure or unapproved. By taking advantage of ideal conditions, attackers can breach government networks, access critical services, and steal citizens’ data. In recent years, the damage caused by ransomware has been unrelenting and unprecedented. Cities both big and small have been impacted, causing chaos for citizen services while also draining money from already tight budgets.
As ransomware and other cyber attacks continue to rise, agencies must prioritize strengthening their cybersecurity. Creating and implementing an in-depth strategy to help build a reliable and resilient security infrastructure is critical to preventing a host of unwanted outcomes. During this event, state and local cybersecurity experts from agencies across the country will explore the steps that their security teams are taking to harden their environment from attacks.
