Cyberattacks are a clear and present danger for all organizations, but local governments are particularly vulnerable. Governments are more likely than any other kind of organization to be the targets of a ransomware attack, and the frequency of ransomware attacks on governments continues to increase. The potential extreme consequences of a cyberattack have caused many local governments to turn to cyber insurance, but finance officers need to develop comprehensive strategies for prevention, response, and recovery. In this session, attendees will become aware of the risks that governments face and identify potential strategies to mitigate them. Attendees will also develop the necessary skills to prepare business continuity plans for when the next inevitable cyberattack hits.
