Designing Strong Cyber Defenses for State and Local Governments

It's no secret that state, county and municipal governments around the U.S. are vulnerable to cyber assaults. IT security personnel need to be on guard to react to rapidly changing threats from ransomware, data breaches, website vandalism and DDOS attacks to not only protect agency assets, but also sensitive information the public sector is responsible for safeguarding. But in an era of limited resources, how should state and local governments best design their defenses in the face of more and more complex threats?

In a special Route Fifty viewcast on cybersecurity, we'll interview top IT security professionals and government practitioners about the basics like effective workforce cyber training, incident response planning, two-factor authentication and privileged access systems. We'll examine some of the cybersecurity training programs and new tools and tactics to lower threat exposure and react strategically in what are often complex and rapidly unfolding incidents.

  • The Navigator Awards: Sharing Innovation and Best Practices Across the Country Recorded: Dec 7 2016 58 mins
    Route Fifty | Underwritten by: Grant Thornton
    Through its coverage of news, technology, innovation and best practices in state, county and municipal governments across the United States, Route Fifty connects the people and ideas advancing state and local governments and enables them to share best practices and innovative solutions to key challenges. To this end, over the past several months Route Fifty has identified and profiled 50 state and local leaders and teams who have demonstrated their ability to conceive and implement great ideas, announcing the 10 winners at the awards ceremony in November.

    This digital viewcast will feature interviews with Navigator Awards winners about their collaborative skills, leadership styles and innovative programs. We'll highlight what made these leaders, teams and programs so successful, as well as how these lessons can be applied to state, county, and municipal governments across the country.
  • Communicate to Convince: Prioritizing Cybersecurity in State & Local Government Recorded: Oct 19 2016 62 mins
    Presented by: Route Fifty | Underwritten by: CenturyLink
    Although cyber attacks are on the rise, cybersecurity in state and local governments around the country often remain woefully underfunded. In an era of limited budgets and competing priorities, the behind-the-scenes risk mitigation of cybersecurity can be underappreciated and pushed down the list.

    This digital viewcast will explore some of the biggest cyber challenges facing state and local governments such as outdated IT systems, the rise of IoT, budgetary constraints and hiring the correct workforce, while also examining how to effectively communicate cyber risks to both internal and external stakeholders. Route Fifty will sit down with cyber experts to discuss the following essential elements of a successful cybersecurity program:

    - Implementing the strategy: Defining the correct priorities, tools, and tactics
    - Training the workforce: Communicating best practices in cybersecurity to employees across an organization
    - Transforming the culture: Instilling the importance of cybersecurity beyond just the office of information technology
    - Developing the partnerships: Working across both different agencies and different levels of government and collaborating with the private sector
    - Making the case: Effectively securing cybersecurity funding from skeptical stakeholders

  • Leveraging Data for State and Local Government Transformation Recorded: Dec 8 2015 61 mins
    Presented by: Route FIfty | Underwritten by: SAS
    These days, it's not uncommon for a state, city, or county government to make their datasets available to the public. But there are limitations in the usefulness of data if that data isn't being used in strategic ways, especially by the government making the data available.

    Editors from Route Fifty and data and performance leaders from state & local jurisdictions will discuss the questions below along with good ideas, best practices and approaches to turn public data into the energy that powers government services.

    What are some of the most innovative ways local jurisdictions are currently using their data to improve the services they provide?

    How can governments not only measure their performance but transform it?

    What are some of the best ways jurisdictions can save their taxpayers money and make informed budgeting decisions?

    What are some of the legal and privacy concerns involving the use of public data?
