In today’s environment, every organization is at risk of having its data and infrastructure compromised. For security professionals today, being secure isn’t just about thwarting attacks – it’s also being prepared to react once you fall victim to a cyberattack.
That’s why we’re hosting an upcoming in-person event on cybersecurity – and we think you should attend. The event is Wednesday, April 30 from 8 to 11 AM in Washington, DC, and will help explain to you the latest trends and best practices shaping government.
Need more convincing? Below, find our top 5 reasons to attend our cybersecurity event, Your Road Map to a Secure Future.
#1: You’ll Improve Security at Your Agency – and Impress Your Boss
Cybersecurity has changed the landscape of government, forcing state, local and federal governments to mitigate risk exposure and respond effectively to new and evolving threats. As government continues to collect, manage and store data, and as the number of mobile devices in the workplace grows, the number of target entry points has also substantially increased.
