Public sector cybersecurity: Understanding the cyberthreat landscape

October 31, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

RSM Webinar

Participants of the live webinar will be eligible for 2 free CPE credit.


The Department of Homeland Security has designated October as National Cybersecurity Awareness Month. While you may not think public sector entities are a major target for cyberattacks, unfortunately they are just as likely to be targets as private sector organizations.

In the last year, 15% of middle market C-suite executives said their organizations experienced a data breach, up from 13% in 2018 and a significant jump from 5% just four years ago. In addition to cybersecurity challenges, emerging data privacy regulations are requiring organizations to make a significant shift in how they collect and store data. While not all breaches can be prevented, there are several ways you can try to mitigate against them including educating staff, being aware of the biggest threats facing the public sector, and implementing and utilizing technology effectively with a security oriented mindset.

Join RSM on Oct. 31 to understand the new data privacy regulations influencing the public sector and the potential opportunities they provide.

  • Explain the latest insights into cyberthreats, privacy and security
