Cyberattacks are common, and local governments are a relatively easy target. Municipalities across the country, including some in Wisconsin, have had their computer networks shut down due to ransomware, a cyberattack that locks governments out of their data, usually demanding money in exchange for access. It often enters a system through phishing emails. Learn how the City of Oshkosh suffered a ransomware attack and the lessons it learned from that experience. Hear experts from Baker Tilly explain how to assess your municipality’s cyber risk and what steps to take to protect your community from cyberattacks.
*In-Person Regional Meeting -
*We know there’s a unique value to local leaders being able to get together and share ideas, so we’re hosting a series of six in-person regional meetings. Join us at the meeting nearest to you. Space will be limited, so only registered conference attendees may attend. Your health is our first concern, so it is possible that we may have to cancel one or more regional meetings based on pandemic conditions.
