Cybesecurity Oversight Training

The National Cybersecurity Center's Cyber Institute is proud to invite C-level and Board Directors of non-profit, non-government organizations (NGOs), private business, and publicly traded companies that are looking to increase preparation, planning, and response actions to unprecedented attacks on corporate data and networks. An obstacle to effective oversight is often a limited understanding of the basics of cybersecurity and its risks. The National Cybersecurity Center hosts regular Cybersecurity Oversight Training courses to expand basic cybersecurity knowledge, understanding associated actions ranging from budgeting to response planning, and discuss mitigation and reconstitution actions for recovery.

Cybersecurity Oversight Training courses are primarily hosted in Colorado Springs, CO and Denver, CO. Please see below for upcoming courses:

First Responder Cyber Exercise-August 31st, 2017

Held four times a year these Cyber Exercises are held in cooperation with industry (local government, healthcare, critical infrastructure etc.) and cyber subject matter experts to provide the framework to strengthen cyber preparedness in the public and private sectors. We will examine organizations’ capability to prepare for, protect from, and respond to cyber attacks’ potential effects;  Exercise strategic decision making and interagency coordination of incident response(s) in accordance with national level policy and procedures; Validate information sharing relationships and communications paths for collecting and disseminating cyber incident situational awareness, response and recovery information; and Examine means and processes through which to share sensitive information across boundaries and sectors without compromising proprietary or national security interests.

Cyber threats are real and they are here to stay.  First responder’s and public safety industry can be incredibly vulnerable.  We are at a critical point in time for first responders to become cyber threat aware and cybersecurity educated.  We all depend on technology for our critical infrastructure, what if that technology and system is attacked and goes down?  Major cybersecurity threats are everywhere, join NCC, AT&T, and The CEPP as we build a first responder cybersecurity community and learn how to protect your agency against cybercrime through critical infrastructure and risk management.
