    In Whole-of-State Cybersecurity, Counties are Not Only One Piece of the Pie

    Whole of State cybersecurity is a collaborative effort between state government, local municipalities (cities/counties), and education (K-12/higher ed) to protect the citizens, individual municipalities and the state, as a whole, from cybersecurity events. Pillars of Whole of State include:

    • Information sharing
    • Incident response planning
    • Proactive cyber protection
    • Workforce development
    • Policy/funding

    Critical factors of success include governance, strategic plans, execution plans, and continuous validation. Having this framework is critical for every jurisdiction, as each handle their own cybersecurity with its own resources, but with varying levels of success. Differences in budgets, staffing, tooling, and so on can be determining factors in how successful a party is in fending off an attack. Given that a state’s different government entities are facing an expanding landscape of common threats, it makes sense for them to pool resources, share information, and work together to strengthen their digital defense.

    Join this panel discussion with Tanium and Navajo County to learn more about how this Whole of State approach is being adopted regionally and nationally; and learn how to get started in your county.
