The public sector – it’s more than the government. Our way of life is organized, delivered, and made possible by countless publicly controlled or publicly funded agencies, enterprises, and other entities delivering a wide range of products, services, and programs. And as citizens and taxpayers we expect quality, convenience, and cost-effectiveness from all of these. But the promise of technology and connectivity to deliver these benefits is being undermined by the cybersecurity perils that plague our entire economy and undermine our confidence.
In this track, we will focus on the cyber challenges faced by State, Local, Tribal, and Territorial governments and the ecosystem that operates around them. We’ll stand back and examine the cyber state-of-play for SLTTs as a whole, and also drill down to specific examples. We’ll look at what this community has in common both internally as well as with the economy at large. What are the challenges that all of us face, like budgets, policy, building a cyber workforce? How can we leverage and synchronize with Federal activities? We’ll also examine the role of the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center as both an information and a services hub for this entire community. And more importantly, what resources can we share, and what lessons can we learn from each other?
