Cyber Security Webinar Series

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 December 13, from 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.


Is Your Government Cyber Aware? Recovering from a Cyber Incident

With nearly 4,000 new cyberattacks occurring daily, understanding the steps your organization must take to recover from a cybersecurity incident is vital to minimize disruptions, preserve trust, and mitigate financial losses. Efficiently recovering from a cyber incident is crucial in restoring operations within your organization. During an incident, a data breach coach can assist your organization in beginning the recovery process, assisting in the immediate response, and developing strategies for effective remediation. As cybersecurity attacks become more common, it is important to understand how your organization will recover when an incident occurs. In a time where Georgia counties face increasing targeting, it is essential for your county to prioritize cybersecurity response and preparedness.
