Three Cybersecurity Areas to Keep Top of Mind in 2024

There are three key security areas that state and local government cybersecurity leaders should remember to keep top of mind as they venture into 2024 – generative AI, cyber insurance and election security.


Generative AI will undoubtedly continue to transform the cybersecurity landscape in new ways, and IT teams will need to plan for its integration this year and beyond. With the new capabilities that AI brings also come new threats that have major implications for cyber insurance, the second cybersecurity area that will require a strategized approach to ensure success in 2024. Election security should also be top of mind for state and local cybersecurity leaders in this presidential election year.


Join Government Technology and Arctic Wolf for a live webinar where a panel of experts will dive into the latest trends in generative AI, cyber insurance and election security. The panel will also extract insights from a brand-new survey report on election cybersecurity from the Center for Digital Government.


You’ll Learn:

  • Key findings from new survey data on election security
  • How generative AI will impact the next generation of security operations
  • How cyber insurance coverage is evolving with the current threat
