The Elected Officials Guide to Cybersecurity as Risk Management

December 17
10AM PT, 1PM ET
Duration: 60 minutes

State and local government technologists consistently identify cybersecurity as their top concern. But good cybersecurity strategy and planning requires involvement from more than technologists. Elected officials also must know and understand their unique fiduciary responsibilities and actively participate in risk mitigation. The challenge has been getting past the technical details and jargon in order to fully understand when and how to act.

The Governing Institute invites you to join the states of Ohio and Minnesota and technology industry leader CGI, for a special webinar discussion of the recently published Guide to Cybersecurity as Risk Management: The Role of Elected Officials. (co-authored by CGI and Governing Institute)

This is your chance to prepare for the 2016 legislative year ahead and learn directly from leading state Chief Information Officers how they are using this new guide to inform and extend the cybersecurity discussion with their elected officials.

Specific topics of discussion will include:


- The benefits of easy to use checklists of the top cybersecurity action items for elected officials, agency executives and lawmakers.
- How best to provide an effective overview of public sector threats, assets and adversaries to elected officials.
- In-depth recommendations for integrating cybersecurity into an organization’s risk management framework.
