Cyber for Counties Initiative
Technology and Innovation
Protecting information and infrastructure has never been more important for counties. With the increasing prevalence of cyber-warfare, county governments need to not only understand what to do to safeguard their data but new resources at their disposal should they be attacked.
Join NACo for one and a half days of educational programming developed to meet the needs of both local elected officials as well as information technology personnel. The NACo National Cyber Symposium will include two tracks of programming with the goal of helping county leaders and IT staff understand the large human and technical networks involved in keeping counties cyber secure.
Developed in partnership with the Peter Kiewit Institute at the University of Nebraska, Omaha, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and with support from AT&T, Cisco and HP, the sessions will include speakers from local, state and federal governments, in addition to the private sector and academia.
Like natural, man-made and economic disasters, security breaches and attacks on critical infrastructure threaten the ability of counties to thrive amid ever-shifting physical, social and economic conditions. For this reason, NACo President Linda Langston has endorsed the 2nd annual NACo National Cyber Symposium through the Resilient Counties Initiative. NACo will work to strengthen county resiliency in a collaborative and comprehensive way, by building leadership and staff capacity and to help counties become more flexible and responsive in all areas of their operations.
The symposium registration fee is $100 and includes a welcome reception, two breakfasts and one lunch. To register, please see the options below.
