November ILCMA Professional Development Event & Metro Luncheon

The ILCMA Professional Development Committee Presents Cyber Security and Managing Municipal IT Infrastructure

Municipal managers must work through a myriad of challenges and one facing many communities in recent years is a threat to our IT infrastrucuture. Communities have been impacted by viruses, hacks, and other threats to our security. While data breaches have become increasingly common place at the corporate and federal level, little information sharing has taken place at the municipal level on ways to safeguard our networks.
This presentation will provide information and strategies for:

• Conducting an audit of your internal security controls
• First hand account of cyber attacks and advice on how to react both before, during and after an event.
• Best practices on IT security

Chris Westgor from the City of Schaumburg, Rich Ocampo from Advanced Business Networks, and Ed Marchewka of Gift of Hope and former Security Manager for Chicago Public Schools will facilitate this important and timely discussion about information technology and how local governments can prepare and weather an attack on your IT infrastructure. This presentation will be a great learning experience for city and village managers as well as local government IT professionals.
