TAGITM: Cybersecurity Disasters – When Our Worlds Collide
March 4 @ 9:30 AM - 4:00 PM
Cybersecurity Disasters – When Our Worlds Collide
Have you heard? TAGITM is hosting a one day Joint IT/EM Cybersecurity Summit on March 4 at the Norris Conference Center Dallas . This is an excellent opportunity to have both the Office of Emergency Management professionals and Information Technology professionals in the same room talking about how best to coordinate in the event of a cybersecurity incident.
We will discuss what it means to have a declared cybersecurity disaster, and what resources are available regardless of whether a disaster is declared. First, we will hear from the DIR State Cybersecurity Team talk about the new cybersecurity legislation and the programing that DIR has developed to aid agencies.
We will then have a presentation from Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) to better understand what resources are available from the state and what prerequisites must be met in order to receive them. In addition to this we will have representation from DHS to clarify what role they would potentially play in a cyber event. One of our very own agency members, IT Director Andy Horn with Carrolton, will discuss with the group first hand knowledge of things to be aware of when bad actors have compromised resources.
This event is not only designed to inform, but to initiate conversations and strengthen relationships between EM and IT departments, so do not hesitate to invite your Emergency Management departments. Please come join us for this unique opportunity.
