TO ATTEND THIS EVENT, YOU MUST RSVP SEPARATELY.

The National Governors Association (NGA) and New America's Cybersecurity Initiative team up to present a panel to discuss how states and their affiliates are working to use the resources at their disposal to assist local governments in reducing cyber risk.

Cyber threats are targeting every level of government in the United States, from the city level up. Recent events in large cities such as Atlanta, Baltimore, and San Francisco, and small cities such as Beatrice, Valdez, and Matanuska-Susitna Borough have highlighted this threat to local governments.

Although cities are building up their own resiliency efforts, there are important ways that states and their affiliates can aid in those efforts. Hear from a panel of experts to understand what initiatives are being launched now, which have been successful already, and suggestions for what more can be done in the future.
