Managing a library is always challenging but keeping up with cybersecurity threats can be overwhelming. How do you learn about the latest threats? How do you educate your staff about best practices? This presentation focuses on the core elements that all leaders and IT staff must prioritize in order to mature their organization while diligently mitigating threats. Additionally, specific technology controls will be discussed to help create an understanding of a safe and secure operating environment.

The material in this presentation can be codified into the following sections: Cybersecurity Basics; Cybersecurity Threats; Risk Management; Cybersecurity Framework; and Cybersecurity Resources.  Library Leaders and IT staff will become familiar with common threats like phishing and ransomware, and understand steps that can be taken every day to prevent falling victim, as well as steps to take to recover should trouble strike.

Who should attend?
Library directors, managers, board members, IT persons, network administrators, etc. 

Presenter: Richard White, PhD, Senior Vice President & Chief Information Security Officer, Flushing Bank

A certificate for 1.5 Professional Development Hours (.15 CEU's) will be emailed after the workshop.
