Join your fellow government meetings colleagues on Thursday, April 13, at 1 pm EDT to learn more about cybersecurity. Today’s high-profile hacks of major organizations and institutions have increased awareness of the issues of digital security, yet most people are compromising their personal and organizational information on a regular basis. This is true for your security, as well as your team and your meeting attendees. Participants at this session will better understand the digital risks, and learn to separate truth from the hype about how secure their presence is.

WHY IT MATTERS: Learn how to keep your personal and organizational information secure and protected. In this webinar, you'll learn:

  1. Five critical terms about digital security for your organization.
  2. How to keep your personal digital presence from being compromised.
  3. The importance of good password management…as well as whether passwords will still be critical moving forward.
