Learn more about cybersecurity preparedness and preventative measures at #MACoCon.
It is often said an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. This goes doubly true in the world of cybersecurity. The the 2020 Summer Conference, MACo is dedicating two special panels to discuss both preventative measures in cybersecurity and best practices in responding to successful cyber-attacks. This panel will cover the preventative side, detailing what governments can do to avoid a worst-case scenario.
Title: Before the Attack: Fortifying Your Cyber Defenses in the Modern World
Description: Developing a proper defense against cyber threats is critical to protecting the continuity of operations. Hackers and ransomware attackers are always testing for weaknesses. Local governments need to be proactive in doing the same, shoring up their defenses and educating internal users. In this first part of this two-part cyber series, leaders in both industry and government will discuss cyber defensive strategies and best practices.
