Cyber attacks continue to rise in the public sector, yet cybersecurity remains to be viewed as an afterthought in many IT projects. In this session, we will outline the landscape of threats to state systems and discuss how States can leverage IV&V and Quality Assurance requirements to move beyond the “checklist” and enhance their cybersecurity programs and practices to effectively address these threats. This session will focus on providing practical recommendations on how to combat the top security threats and strengthen the maturity of your cybersecurity program.
