Cybersecurity is a critical issue for all organizations, and economic development organizations are no exception. As these organizations work to support and grow local businesses, they must also be aware of the potential cyber threats that these businesses may face. That’s why DVIRC is excited to partner with MxD to offer a one-hour cybersecurity workshop for economic development organizations. This program is co-sponsored by the Pennsylvania Department of Community & Economic Development.

This workshop is designed for economic development organizations who want to gain a better understanding of cybersecurity risks and the best practices and resources that are available. By attending this workshop, participants will gain valuable insights and strategies to better protect their organization and the businesses they support from cyber threats.

During this workshop, attendees will learn about the latest cybersecurity threats and trends, as well as best practices for protecting their organizations and the businesses they support. The workshop will cover topics such as:

  • Identifying and preventing common cyber attacks
  • Implementing effective security policies and procedures
  • Responding to a security incident
  • How to take advantage of available resources

MxD's Laura Élan will lead this webinar.
