State and local government Chief Information Officers have reported that cyber security is their #1 priority each of the last 3 years.  However, while the topic has stayed the same, the nature of the threats and the data and infrastructure that needs to be protected have continued to evolve.  Staying focused on a moving target is difficult indeed.

The Center for Digital Government Digital States Performance Institute (DSPI) invites you to participate in a special webinar that will explore how state governments are rising the meet the challenge.  We will be discussing:

  • The increasing threat posed by ransomware and proven strategies for protecting yourself
  • Protecting the increasingly common enterprise mix of: on premise, cloud and SaaS data
  • How best to reallocate resources from a perimeter focused defense to one optimized for the realities of a more virtual environment
  • What CIOs and CISOs must do to build and maintain support for an effective cyber security program
  • How to present cybersecurity to policy makers and executives as a risk management issue and not a technical expense
