Counties face an evolving array of emerging cybersecurity trends. As technology becomes increasingly integrated into our daily lives, counties must contend with challenges such as ransomware attacks, data breaches, and phishing scams that can compromise sensitive information and disrupt vital services. The interconnectedness of critical infrastructure, government operations, and public services magnifies the potential impact of cyber threats.
Counties are working to bolster our cybersecurity measures by investing in robust defenses, fostering collaboration with cybersecurity experts, and enhancing employee training to mitigate risks and ensure the integrity of their digital environments. This presentation will provide actionable steps county leaders can take to stay ahead of these emerging trends to maintain the security and privacy of our citizens in an increasingly digital age.
