Cybersecurity remains the No. 1 priority for state and local CIOs. But the cybersecurity landscape is changing. Recent attacks on the software supply chain have raised troubling concerns about organizations’ ability to protect their data. Ransomware attacks on state and local government are increasing at an alarming rate. Foreign bad actors are launching cyber attacks on critical infrastructure systems.
What can state and local governments do to protect themselves? What role should CISOs and other IT security leaders play in overall decision-making? How will current threats impact the future deployment of smart technologies throughout government?
To answer these questions – and many others – Government Technology and the Center for Digital Government are launching a timely new series on cyber resilience, featuring in-depth conversations with public IT security leaders, valuable reports and papers, and more.
Join us September 29 at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET as we kick off this series with an overview of the new landscape of cyber threats. This initial conversation will cover a lot of ground, including:

• How to best access, priorities and leverage new sources of cybersecurity funding, including federal funds
• What governments should be doing now to prepare against evolving threats
