Recent cyberattacks against public sector networks have demonstrated the risk that third parties can introduce into government networks. Building a comprehensive third party risk program requires local government leaders to look at identification, classification, assessment, management, and monitoring of third parties and their risk. For the past several months, cybersecurity leaders from public and private organizations from around the nation have been sharing best practices on the best ways to build a third party risk management program. During this session developed in partnership with NACo, ICMA, and ASBO, attendees will learn about the groups recommended program components and walk away with the high-level building blocks to develop a third party risk management program for their county.
Speaker: Parham Eftekhari, Executive Director, Cybersecurity Collaborative and Chairman, Institute for Critical Infrastructure Technology
