While the federal government works on big-picture solutions, state and local government agencies are under tremendous pressure to secure critical data, infrastructure and services.
The massive amount of valuable data housed by county agencies — Social Security and driver’s license numbers, credit card information, and health-care records, to name a few — is an attractive target for cybercriminals seeking financial gain.
In a General Session at MACo’s upcoming Summer Conference, cybersecurity leaders will describe where counties can make progress toward better cyber protection, even under these circumstances. Subjects will include employee training and leveraging cost-effective tools and partnership opportunities to maintain data integrity.
