The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 provides significant funding to state and local governments (SLG), some of which can be allocated to IT modernization and cybersecurity. As public sector agencies continue to encounter more sophisticated and targeted cyber threats, this funding provides an opportunity to strategically address gaps in security and plan for the long term.
On April 22 at 10:00 a.m. PT/1:00 p.m. ET, Government Technology will speak with Amazon Web Services (AWS) cybersecurity subject matter expert Chuck Grindle and IronNet founder GEN Keith Alexander (Ret.), former director of the National Security Agency, chief of the Central Security Service, and commander of the United States Cyber Command. They will discuss how and where cybercriminals identify vulnerabilities and how agencies can use this funding and the cloud to thoughtfully evaluate their applications and technology and to put the right defenses in place.
Join us to hear about:
- Opportunities for system modernization and cybersecurity in American Rescue Plan Act funding
- How legacy applications in state and local governments create opportunities for cybercriminals
- The unexpected places your vulnerabilities can be found
- Research that reveals local governments’ top challenges in moving to the cloud quickly and the most important roles cloud technology can offer in cyber incident response strategies
