DHS/KOHS hosts FEMA Cybersecurity Training

March 8 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm CST

CYBERSECURITY RISK AWARENESS FOR OFFICIALS AND SENIOR MANAGEMENT

The Kentucky Office of Homeland Security is proud to host the following FEMA cybersecurity training and provide a cyber tabletop exercise moderated by CISA.

This is a non-technical course meant to develop awareness of cybersecurity risks so that elected officials, appointed officials, and other senior managers are better informed to properly protect the jurisdiction/organization during a cybersecurity incident. It is designed to help officials and senior management work more effectively with their Information Technology (IT) departments to mitigate cyber threats. The training is tailored to government, critical infrastructure, and private sector personnel who have the responsibility for directing and developing policy within their organization.

Limited to 45 seats!  Registration Links Below

March 8th 2022

  • This FEMA course is four hours and will run from morning until lunch
  • After lunch CISA will provide a 2 hour cyber tabletop exercise to help attendees put the principals learned in the training into practice.
