Training Employees to Help Prevent Cyber Attacks

As data breaches and cyberattacks are becoming increasingly common, cybersecurity awareness training stands as the first line of defense to protect your organization from the ever-evolving threats. The increase in social engineering techniques, such as phishing, make your employees your organization’s biggest vulnerability, with a startling 91% of successful data breaches originating from phishing attacks. Investing in cybersecurity awareness training is an essential step towards safeguarding your organization and protecting sensitive data. Don’t wait until a cyber incident occurs – empower your team with the knowledge and skills they need to detect cyber threats today. Georgia counties are being targeted, and your county is not immune. 

The University of Georgia Carl Vinson Institute of Government’s (CVIOG) CyberArch Program is working with ACCG Insurance Programs to offer a series of webinars to help strengthen county officials in cybersecurity best practices. The next session in this six-part series will take place on November 29, from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.


Is Your Government Cyber Aware? Creating an Incident Response Plan

County governments are a prime target for cybersecurity attacks due to the sensitive data required to run local government operations. With nearly 4,000 new cyberattacks occuring daily, Georgia counties are not immune to this growing threat. An Incident Response Plan is a critical component of an organization’s cybersecurity strategy, providing defense against cyber threats and ensuring an effective response when incidents occur.  This plan will minimize potential damage by outlining comprehensive steps to contain and mitigate threats, promoting clear communication during incidents, and enabling operational continuity during unforeseen events. As the digital landscape evolves, incident response plans are an important security measure, serving as a tool to promptly reach the right individuals and effectively respond to security incidents.  In a time when Georgia counties face increasing targeting, it is essential for your county to prioritize cybersecurity response and preparedness.
