FREE | Customizing End User Cybersecurity Education for Your Community and Culture

When:  Sep 16, 2021 from 01:00 PM to 02:00 PM (ET)

The National Association of Counties working with the NACo Tech Xchange recently identified the most important best practices for state and local governments as they address the current onslaught of cyberattacks. This webinar will provide invaluable guidance on implementing the practice of End User Education.

Ensuring the cybersecurity of your community depends as much on end user education as it does advanced tools and policies. A layered security strategy for local governments and school districts must include a thoughtful end user cybersecurity awareness and education program that includes components such as phishing exercises and other cybersecurity training programs. During this session, cybersecurity experts will share strategies for delivering end user cybersecurity training programs for your organization.
