Cybersecurity professionals working for state and local agencies and educational systems are likely already aware that cyber attacks targeting their organizations are increasing sharply – the second quarter of 2023 saw a 40% increase over the first quarter of the year.


System defenders face the ongoing challenges of resource constraints, increasingly complex networks, and data overload. Add in emerging cyber threats from the accelerating use of AI by threat actors and cybersecurity has never been so crucial.


Learning Objectives:

  • Outline the role of attack surface management to improve visibility, protect critical assets, identify risks, and mitigate threats
  • Evaluate the use of cybersecurity automation to counteract tight budgetary and manpower resources
  • Delineate the importance of receiving timely, actionable intelligence on the spread of emerging threats and how to defend against them
