Connecting state and local government leaders

We’ll discuss how to think about effectively protecting agency IT assets and safeguarding public sector information. Register today for this free event.

It's no secret that state, county and municipal governments around the U.S. are vulnerable to cyber assaults. IT security personnel need to be on guard to react to rapidly changing threats from ransomware, data breaches, website vandalism and DDOS attacks to not only protect agency assets but also sensitive information the public sector is responsible for safeguarding.
