Cyber-attacks against state and local governments are just as frequent and complex as those targeting larger and better funded Federal agencies. Meanwhile, these smaller government entities are responsible for protecting large volumes of sensitive assets and ensuring the continuity of essential systems and services — with significantly fewer IT resources. In this webinar, Mike Lettman and Dr. Srinivas Mukkamala will explain how state and local governments can implement continuous cyber threat monitoring, risk scoring, and remediation programs without federal-agency scale budgets. They will present best practices being used by the State of Arizona to pro-actively identify and address cyber security gaps while also ensuring compliance with NIST and other guidance (e.g., FISMA, FedRAMP).
