Strengthening Cybersecurity in State and Local Agencies using Zero Trust

This event qualifies for 1 CPEs

Most IT leaders acknowledge the growing threat from ransomware, however many state and local governments are unprepared to prevent or respond to it. When an agency does not know the blast radius of an attack, whether sensitive data is affected, or how long it may take to recover, the only option they are often left with is to pay up. In order to protect themselves against an organized, well-resourced attacker agencies need a strong security posture in place. The best defense being Zero Trust – employing security at the point of data.

Join this webinar to hear state and local cybersecurity experts outline how to build effective protection against ransomware by making Zero Trust a strategic priority. They will explore the best practice for implementing a Zero Trust architecture that ensures your backups are truly immutable.
