AWR 136 Essentials of Community Cybersecurity

<< All Events Start: Monday, August 30, 2021 - 01:00 pm
End: Monday, August 30, 2021 - 05:00 pm

We are hoping to hold this class in person at the Bismarck Ramkota Hotel, August 30, 2021 beginning at 1:00 p.m. and concluding at 5:00 p.m.; however if that is not possible due to any changes in FEMA travel restrictions, etc., it will be offered as a virtual class.  The current registration link will indicate a virtual class, but please register if you can attend in person and the virtual option will be the back up plan.

AWR-136 provides participants with an introduction to concepts related to community cybersecurity. Participants will examine the different types of cyber attacks, how communities are vulnerable to cyber attacks and incidents, and what types of organizations are most likely to be targeted. This course will also introduce the participants to the Community Cyber Security Maturity Model and how to use the model to build a community cybersecurity program and their cyber resilience.

This 4 hour course is targeted to anyone who has responsibilities in critical infrastructure, emergency operations or incident response.

Discussion will address why cybersecurity is important, unstructured threats, structured threats, highly structured threats, the Community Cybersecurity Maturity Model (CCSMM), things a community can do to initiate a cybersecurity program, and where to go for help.

A block or rooms has been reserved for the ND Emergency Management Conference.  ND Department of Emergency Services will reimburse appropriate students for hotel room at the state rate and for meal per diem according to state policy. 


Questions may be directed to Larry Regorrah or Brenda Vossler.
