Start Date: February 08, 2018 at 1:00 pm EDT | End: February 08, 2018 at 2:30 pm EDT


Our transportation agencies are on the cutting edge of Information Technology with Connected & Autonomous Vehicles, Integrated & Active Corridors, Software Applications, and Multiple Networks. It has never been more critical to properly define and understand the basics of a Cyber Security Program.   Every agency should be clear on why is it important? How are they exposed? What are the risks?  How IT and Cyber Security work together?  What are the available resources? Who needs to be engaged and when?  How to develop a program?

The first step is to understand the Why, What and How of Cyber Security.  

This is the first of three webinars that will be hosted by the NOCoE on cybersecurity.
