The Massachusetts Municipal Cybersecurity Summit is a virtual event created by the MassCyberCenter at the MassTech Collaborative for the Commonwealth’s 351 municipalities.
This event is designed to help municipal leaders, first responders, utility providers, and IT personnel improve cybersecurity programs in their city or town. The Summit will be held on Thursday, October 6, 2022 during the first week of Massachusetts Cybersecurity Month, to highlight the importance of local cybersecurity resiliency.
Featuring keynotes from Commonwealth and federal leadership, and sessions to learn about the latest threats and modern security concepts--including zero trust architecture, this event will provide opportunities for collaboration and present guidance and information on resources and programs to help municipalities enhance their cyber-culture, protect against cyberattacks, and improve their cybersecurity resiliency.
The Minimum Baseline of Cybersecurity is a framework for helping Massachusetts municipalities improve their cybersecurity posture and protect their municipality from cyberattacks using people, process, and technology.
