RC3-SLTTGCC Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity Webinar Series

You are cordially invited to participate in a joint Council Cyber Webinar Series sponsored by the Regional Consortium Coordinating Council (RC3), and State, Local, Tribal, and Territorial Government Coordinating Council (SLTTGCC), in conjunction with the Department of Homeland Security/ Infrastructure Protection.


With the growing cyber security concerns and evolving cyber threats across the United States, organizations in both the government and private sector are working to better understand cyber vulnerabilities, cyber threats, and methods used to protect critical infrastructure networks. The webinar series will focus on the cybersecurity efforts of federal and non-federal government agencies as well as regionally significant organizations and stakeholders by showcasing the stories and efforts of government and community cyber initiatives. The overall goal is to create a forum for dialogue about best practices, awareness of government programs and organizational capabilities within the cyber realm. The webinars will be monthly beginning June, 2016 and will culminate in October for Cyber Awareness month.


This webinar's first presentation is “Federal Cyber Resources and How to Tap Into Them”, presented by Howard Tsai, Office of Cybersecurity and Communications, Department of Homeland Security. This presentation will demonstrate to participants the best way to interact with the content within the Critical Infrastructure Cyber Community Volunteer Program (C3VP) website and show the mapping between the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) cybersecurity framework’s 5 core functions and its relationship with DHS cybersecurity programs.


The second presentation is "Building the CyberMaryland Initiative", presented by David Powell, Chief Operating Officer, Federal Business Council.
