Local governments face daily cybersecurity concerns that necessitate plans for proactive and preventative measures. Luis Valdes, Manager of Technology and Security for the Florida Center for Cybersecurity will provide a very informative session on this topic. He will include an overview and history of ransomware, and offer prevention tips and ways to recover from certain types of ransomware. The Florida Center for Cybersecurity was created during the 2014 legislative session. It is a shared resource for research, education, and outreach across the state and beyond, and is located at the University of South Florida. This is a wonderful opportunity to join your peers in an interactive session with Mr. Valdez in learning about this important concern.
