Cyberattacks are a clear and present danger for all organizations, but local governments are particularly vulnerable. A 2020 study showed that local governments are more likely to be the targets of a ransomware attack than any other kind of organization and that 44% of ransomware attacks targeted local governments in 2020. For finance officers, it’s imperative to understand the cyber risks that your government faces, and how to effectively meet them.
Participants will hear from leading cyber experts at CISA and Aon about the controls you should have for your government and the critical components of cyber risk. There will also be a discussion on cyber insurance including choosing the right policy for your organization by weighing prices, availability, and exceptions.
