States and localities have been affected by the wave of ransomware attacks over the past three years. From the small town of Webster Township, Mich. (population under 6,600) to state governments such as Louisiana, agencies large and small, at all levels, have had to scramble to rebuild their websites, databases, email systems and more following such attacks. It is a particular challenge for them due to older IT infrastructure, underfunded programs, and difficulty hiring and retaining qualified cybersecurity professionals.


The passage of the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill late last year offers the chance to make their lives easier – it includes $1 billion, allocated over 2022-25, for improving their cybersecurity. The funds will be distributed through a Homeland Security grant program administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.


Join us as thought leaders from government and industry discuss the funding that is now available and how state and local agencies can apply for grants to address their cybersecurity needs.
