Event Description

As our digital environment expands, the issues of cybersecurity loom larger every year. People are becoming even more connected to each other and the environment around them – the dawn of Smart Cities is upon us and the challenge of protecting information is increasingly difficult. Therefore, to address our shared cybersecurity concerns, it is important for us as a professional community to improve our awareness, increase our knowledge, improve our communication, and develop our relationships to meet head on the realities of the world we now share.

This year’s Cybersecurity event will focus on the unique challenges that face Local Governments, while advancing cybersecurity awareness and delivering the educational curriculum for which the Cybersecurity Symposium is known. Attendees will return to their organizations better equipped to take action and be more effective in the following areas:

  • Securing Smart Cities: Cybersecurity approach for cities of today and tomorrow.
  • Cybersecurity Governance: Policies and processes to manage and monitor regulatory, legal, risk, environmental, and operational requirements.
  • Awareness and Training: Providing personnel and partners cybersecurity awareness education to excel in the performance of their cybersecurity related duties.
  • Information Protection: Manage information and records (data) consistent with the risk strategy to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information.
  • Recovery Planning: Execute recovery processes and procedures to ensure timely restoration of systems or assets affected by cybersecurity events.
  • Cloud Security and Privacy: Information protection and privacy management in the cloud.
  • Risk Management: Establish priorities, constraints, risk tolerances, and assumptions to support operational risk decisions.
  • ICS/SCADA: Protecting critical infrastructure operations that are essential to our citizens.
