How serious is your organization taking on cybersecurity and whose responsibility is it?

As local government organizations grow more reliant on digital resources, the cybersecurity threat looms larger and larger each year.  In a recent report published by PwC, Global Economic Crime Survey 2016, cybercrime has jumped “from 4th to 2nd place among the most-reported types of economic crime”.

Join the Alliance for Innovation and Chief Information Officer (CIO) for the City of Palo Alto, CA, Dr. Jonathan Reichental, on July 20 for a webinar to hear how Palo Alto has made cybersecurity an enterprise priority.  Dr. Reichental will share the “why” it’s essential local government take action today to assess their vulnerabilities and provide essential steps to better prepare your organization from cyber threats. 

In this session, attendees will hear about:

  • Argument for cybersecurity
  • Case Study overview: Sony Pictures attack
  • How big of a risk is cybercrime?
  • A discussion of immediate and current threats including answering the question, what is the dark web?”
  • Initial actions to take
