When the COVID-19 pandemic forced much of the world to stay at home overnight, state and local government leaders swiftly pivoted their workforces remote so they could continue to deliver critical citizen services. But this rapid shift opened new cybersecurity vulnerabilities. Suddenly, attack surfaces expanded and endpoints became widely distributed, leading to an increase in cyber threats.

In this second webcast in a three-part series, Government Technology will be joined by Salt Lake County to discuss how they gained visibility and control in this new environment. Register now to learn:
