Presented by Joseph Hall, Chief Technologist at the Center for Technology & Democracy

Description of what Members can expect to learn:

We hear about it all the time in the news: hacking, ransomware, malware, viruses, denial of service attacks, phishing, cyber-hijacking, and data breaches. TLA’s (Three-Letter Acronyms) are tossed around like insults at a political debate. What do they all mean? For local governments, where is the REAL risk? How can a non-technical government with limited resources understand all this technobabble and know what to do to protect its systems, data, and customers? What useful resources are available to help us wrap our arms around cybersecurity?

In this informative webinar, Joseph Hall, Chief Technologist at the Center for Technology & Democracy, will help us navigate this strange new world, providing specific tips and resources that even non-techies can use.
